LA Dreamers: Our African American Pioneers – Karen Bass

The celebration of Black History Month began back in 1926 and today the February tradition is still going strong.

To observe this important time — all month-long, KTLA will pay respect to ‘LA Dreamers – Our African-American Pioneers’.

In this Vignette, Avi Bernard takes a look at the extraordinary commitment of Congresswoman Karen Bass.

To find out more about Karen Bass and other LA Dreamers, The Los Angeles Urban League has a special free exhibit called ‘The 90 That Built LA’.
