rumaan-alam-websiteWe loved this “Brief, But Spectacular” look at what family means, produced for the PBS News Hour.

While many families may look like the archetype of mom and dad and kids, every family has something that makes them different, says author Rumaan Alam.

The makeup of his family — a brown man and a white man with two black boys — requires that he and his husband practice what he calls “radical honesty” with their kids.

Alam shares his Brief but Spectacular take on family in this short video.
