RBG: Her Legacy & The Court's Future, A PBS NEWSHOUR Special
Airs Thursday, Sept. 24, 2020 at 8 p.m. on KPBS 2 + Friday, Sept. 25 at 11 p.m. on KPBS TV + PBS Video App
At this moment, the country is mourning a historic civil rights figure and a cultural icon, and we are also being torn further in political acrimony over the fight to fill her seat.
PBS NEWSHOUR will focus on both of these major themes, with conversations with people who knew and worked with Ginsberg, others who carry her work forward in the law, as well as reporting on the battle to replace her. They will discuss how that is changing the remaining days of the campaign, and also possibly the very structure and nature of the Senate and the Court themselves.
Along with these thoughtful conversations and news making interviews, we also will include Ruth Bader Ginsberg in her own words — from various interviews NEWSHOUR and PBS have done in the past — and a wide range of voices of people explaining what RBG meant to them.
