KCTS 9: "Bob Santos, Roberto Maestas and Larry Gossett recall their activism in Seattle" (with video)

KCTS with video (17:31):
They are known as the “Gang of Four”. While one has passed on, three remain as active as ever pushing and prodding for social justice and civil rights. Bob Santos, Larry Gossett, Roberto Maestas and the late Bernie Whitebear will be honored with the YMCA of Greater Seattle’s A.K. Guy Award for their activism, leadership and unique efforts to bring diverse communities together. Enrique Cerna talks with the three living honorees who came together in the late 60s. They recall their activism and remember their friend and fellow activist, the late Bernie Whitebear, who for 30 years headed the United Indians of All Tribes Foundation.
