Project CommUNITY: History & Hope

KOAT is sharing stories from Black Americans who lived through some of our country's darkest times. The memories can be painful, but the messages are mixed with wisdom and hope for future generations. From segregation, to the civil rights movement and last summer's racial reckoning, they've witnessed history and some of them have even been part of it. Plus, the hope they have for our future now. The one-hour program features Black seniors paired with young Black Hearst Television journalists for probing, in-depth conversations. The special represents the culmination of more than 30 stories initially told throughout the month of February in celebration of Black History Month.
