To mark the passing of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, WPBS brings you this PBS NewsHour special commemorating her life.
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. In High Stakes: Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s Legacy & The Court’s Future, airing Thursday, September 24 at 10 pm on WPBS-TV, PBS NewsHour will focus on both of these major themes, with conversations with people who knew and worked with Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, others who carry her work forward in the law, as well as reporting on the battle to replace her.
Along with these thoughtful conversations and news making interviews, the special will also include Ruth Bader Ginsburg in her own words – from various interviews the PBS NewsHour and PBS have done in the past — and a wide range of voices of people explaining what RBG meant to them.
Please note: To accommodate this special, WPBS-TV will pre-empt the regularly scheduled programs Beyond the Canvas episodes #102 and #103.
