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.
Music and activism are deeply intertwined. From spirituals of the slavery era to the pro-peace anthems of the Vietnam War period to Green Day's "American Idiot" to Beyonce's "Lemonade," these songs reflect the issues of the eras that gave birth to them.
