Local Heroes | KCET
About Local Heroes
Local Heroes recognized activists, educators, community leaders, and visionaries -- the ones doing the critical work that many times goes unrecognized. The project included a reception and an awards program to salute the accomplishments and services of men and women who are making a significant impact in Southern California communities.
We are currently seeking sponsorship for the Local Heroes program and therefore will not have Local Heroes until additional funding is secured.
In the meantime, please visit kcet.org/heritage where we will be celebrating remarkable individuals and showcasing important documentaries that commemorate national heritage months.
“Until, Until, Until…” revisits Ronald Reagan’s televised inaugural gala in 1981, when celebrated Broadway and television actor Ben Vereen paid tribute to vaudeville great, Bert Williams. The performance nearly cost Vereen his career.
