The Children's Hour Sat 2/10 9a: We’ll continue our celebration of Black History with the story of an unsung hero, Cecil J. Williams, who as a teenage photographer documented some of the most momentous events of the Civil Rights Movement. His iconic photographs told the story of the movement in ways words couldn’t capture. Plus, it’s Valentine’s Day next week and we’ll find out how one Albuquerque family takes the holiday to a whole new level. And find out about the DaVinci exhibit at the New Mexico Museum of Natural History and Science.
