Pioneer: Jesus Treviño
KCET salutes another pioneer in Southern California public television. Jesus Treviño is an award-winning writer and director with a long list of television and film credits. He began his career in the 1960s as a civil rights activist and produced the first nationally broadcast documentary about Latinos, made by a Latino, in the 70s for KCET. After filming "Yo Soy Chicano" ("I Am Chicano"), he went on to make several more documentaries on the subject of civil rights and the struggle of Chicanos in the United States.
"We were given a lot of freedom to go out and do programming that was going to be reflective of that community. ... There was trust in our ability to create what our community needed." -- Treviño
