This is a segment from the Faces of Amarillo documentary series that aired on Panhandle PBS, a television station in Amarillo, in March 1987. “Image” showcases the often neglected cultural diversity of Amarillo as well as discusses how ethnic minority and immigrant communities assimilated into Amarillo while maintaining their own traditions and cultural practices. Additionally, another portion of this segment reviews how social movements and changing standards of dress and decorum in the 20th century were met with controversy amongst the conservative Amarillo population. This film was produced by Lynanlary Production and Amarillo College Television.
