Welcome to this edition of the Passport newsletter. This week, we feature Becoming Frida Kahlo, a three-part docuseries celebrating her life and contribution to the art world. Evolution Earth takes us to the far corners of the planet to discover how animals and vegetation adapt to our rapidly changing planet.

We look back in time through American Experience's program, The Harvest, exploring the small town of Leland, Mississippi, and the integration of its public schools in 1970. Told through the remembrances of students, teachers, and parents. Finally, we feature Acquitted from Walter Presents, a Norwegian series with a strong storyline and the prestige of being one of the biggest launches in its home country.
