Event Overview

In concurrence with the new 12-hour television event, Mankind The Story of All of Us, HISTORY invited educators & young people from across the globe to join them for the live webcast, MANKIND CONNECTED: A Global Teach-InThe live online event took place on Thursday, November 8th, and featured a panel of historians, special guests, and students from around the world, to explore UNESCO World Heritage sites & discuss a shared history between all humans. The main broadcast took place in Washington, D.C’s interactive museum, the Newseum, and featured numerous videos & live remote presentations, to showcase an insider’s look into a variety of UNESCO locations.

  • Provided a technical producer & camera operator on the ground at the schools in Chile & Missouri, to guarantee direct & seamless communication between the main studio & these two remote locations
