“No Time to Waste—The Urgent Message of Betty Reid Soskin”—a documentary on the iconic Richmond resident and Rosie the Riveter/WWII Home Front National Historical Park ranger—will air on NBC Bay Area (KNTV) on Saturday, July 4 at 7 p.m. PST.

SAN JOSE, CA – (June 30, 2020) – NBC Bay Area is proud to feature the incredible story of a Bay Area icon on the Fourth of July.

No Time to Waste—The Urgent Message of Betty Reid Soskin is a 50-minute film by Carl Bidleman in association with the Rosie the Riveter Trust, that introduces the audience to this dynamic 98-year-old park ranger while delving into her personal mission to restore critical missing chapters of America’s story.

The film follows Soskin’s journey as an African American woman presenting her personal story to those lucky enough to stumble on this living, breathing lesson in history from the humble setting of a national park theatre.

“Betty Reid Soskin speaks to us from the wisdom of experience, inviting us into a history that has gone untold for too long,” said Stacy Owen, President and General Manager for NBC Bay Area. “We could think of no more fitting way to celebrate July Fourth than to amplify Betty’s message of exploring the complexities of our American history.”

Immediately following the documentary, NBC Bay Area’s Cheryl Hurd will conduct an intimate conversation with Soskin as they explore where we’ve been and where we are going at this critical juncture in our history.
