Chasing the Dream: A PBS NewsHour Weekend Special

About This Episode

Hosted by Alison Stewart, this special edition of PBS NewsHour Weekend presents some of its signature reporting from Chasing the Dream, a multi-platform public media initiative on poverty and opportunity.

There were no bigger issues fueling the chaotic 2016 election than jobs and the increasing number of Americans who feel that a recovering economy simply passed them by. From the rural towns of Eastern Kentucky to the heart of Silicon Valley, this program highlights stories of both struggles and solutions — and sheds new light on the growing economic divide felt by millions of Americans.
