RENO, Nev. (MyNews4.com & KRNV) -- As the nation celebrates Black History Month, a local University instructor and author is doing her part to carry on Dr. Martin Luther King Junior's legacy.

Tiffiney Bradley had a vision 14 years ago and just last month, it became a reality. Bradley recently published a book series that focuses on working to avoid stereotypes.

Bradley’s two book series entitled “The Evolution of Virtue” focuses on four races coming together and realizing that there is more to a person than meets the eye. “It may open their minds to exploring their world on a greater and deeper level,” says Bradley.

Bradley is not only an author, but she’s also an instructor at both the University of Nevada and Truckee Meadows Community College, where her passion for understanding other races and how they perceive each other is impacting her current students.

Abigail Ridmath says, “We have so many different races in this classroom that I’m like, okay I want to see how you guys take different issues. I almost want to hear the same speech from two different people, because everyone is so diverse and different.”

Bradley says she has learned so much as an instructor and as an author, “I’ve learned it’s difficult and it’s challenging to change people, but if you can get people to think, if you can teach people something that they didn’t know, take them to places they have not gone, then you’ve accomplished a lot.”

Whether it’s through her book or her classes, Bradley hopes to continue a legacy that was started many years ago, “The legacy I would like to leave is that I was an author and I was an educator, who continued the legacy and made it relevant for Americans of my time.”
