PBS laurelsThe film is scheduled to air nationwide between December 30, 2016 and January 6, 2017. Patricia decided to make the documentary with her own funds in order to help spread this story of hope to others.

“My film is an attempt to fill in a small part that is missing from a much larger picture and PBS is a great place to do that, so I feel lucky to have won. The historical story of Clara Brown is one of hope and, as human beings, I think we could all use more hope,” says McInroy.
