We’re featuring women who were pioneers in music and film, women who have overcome adversity and used their talents to inspire millions around the world, creating a lasting legacy. We’ll also feature local stories that are observing Black History Month through art, culture, and more.

KVCR's Lillian Vasquez speaks with Karen Riley, Executive Director of the S.C.R.A.P. Gallery, a children’s art and environmental conservation museum in the Coachella Valley. Karen talks about The Quest for Truth and Justice exhibit, which honors the life and work of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. 

Lillian plays a clip from Dr. Martin Luther King Jr’s acceptance speech, when he received the Nobel Peace Prize for his nonviolent resistance to racial prejudice in America. This speech was the inspiration behind the “Quest for Peace and Justice” exhibit at the S.C.R.A.P.  Gallery.
