The New Heroes, a PBS series

San Francisco Bay View - National Black Newspaper of the Year: "The New Heroes,� a PBS series (Channel 9) which will be aired June 28 and July 5, profiles the lives of more than 13 social entrepreneurs who have for at least 20 years each provided constituencies throughout the world, including the San Francisco Bay Area, with opportunities to make better lives for themselves.
Whether their assistance was providing education for poor children on train platforms 300 miles south of Calcutta, India, or helping Kenyan subsistence farmers increase yields through a foot-operated water pump; freeing enslaved families in India or giving former convicts an opportunity for redemption � true correction � as seen in Mimi Silbert�s �Delancy Street Foundation,� all of these entrepreneurs have one thing in common: each is quietly making a difference, one person, one community at a time.
