Reading Rainbow: The Wall (PBS)
1992 | GPN/Nebraska ETV Network
While the Reading Rainbow series targets beginning readers, this stirring episode has equal appeal to all ages. In “The Wall,” the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C. is explored and interpreted for viewers. Particularly insightful is an interview with Maya Lin, the young architect who designed the monument. We learn that each of the choices, from the original design to the use of various construction materials, was integral to the communicative impact the Wall would have on contemporary and future visitors. For a decade Reading Rainbow has shared the joy of reading with children. For setting that lofty goal and achieving it with The Wall, a Peabody Award to Reading Rainbow.
