Help Bring Milton's Films to PBS!

On December 27th, 2009, WNED in Buffalo aired, for the first time ever on television, “The Rich Have Their Own Photographers,” a film by Ezra Bookstein about the life and work of Milton Rogovin.

Milton, who turned 100 years old this December 2009, had to wait 3 years to see his film on TV! We think its time for this documentary be aired on public television stations across the country. Won't you help us make Milton's wish come true?

Our goal with this grassroots email campaign is to generate viewer support across the US to have the film aired on other public television stations. Draft a Letter to your Public TV station today!
