From Prohibition and the Jazz Age to the moon landing and the birth of rock and roll, many of the greatest, most significant events of the 20th century have only been experienced in the black and white footage available at the time. AMERICA IN COLOR, a new five-part series from Smithsonian Channel, presents many of these iconic moments in U.S. history as never before seen – using artistry and cutting-edge technology to transform black-and-white films and photographs from the 1920s to the 1960s. Decade by decade, the story of America, its people and its culture are given new life and shown in vibrant color for the first time. AMERICA IN COLOR premieres on Smithsonian Channel on Sunday, July 2 at 8 p.m. ET/PT.
