The Film

An American Love Story explores the dynamics of race relations through two people's individual lives and their struggles to build a family at the intersection of two separate American communities — one black and one white. The 10-hour series follows blues musician Bill Sims, corporate manager Karen Wilson, and their two daughters. Like An American Family, the series charts both mundane and momentous events, taking the temperature of contemporary family life, asking what has happened to American society since the civil rights movement, and tracing the role race and gender play in three decades of an (extra)ordinary multiethnic relationship.
