Our spotlight episode is "Molly & Elizabeth." This story highlights Elizabeth Peratrovich, an Alaska Native civil rights leader who led the enactment of the nation’s first state or territorial anti-discrimination law in 1945. Peratrovich inspires Molly, who worries she's not "Native enough," to stand up to a group of tourists who make stereotypical assumptions about Alaska Native People.
