Program Description

Throughout her life Marian Wright Edelman has fought tirelessly for equal rights for all Americans. During the Civil Rights movement, she worked alongside Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., Medgar Evers, Fannie Lou Hamer, and Robert F. Kennedy. Her life is full of firsts: she was the first black woman admitted to the Bar in Mississippi (where she established an NAACP Legal Defense and Education Fund office), half of the first interracial couple to be legally married in Virginia after the Supreme Court ruled on Loving, and the first African American to chair the Board of Trustees of (historically black) Spelman College. In 1973 she founded the Children’s Defense Fund, a non-profit child advocacy organization which works to advance the best interests of all children. In this interview María Hinojosa talks to the Presidential Medal of Freedom winner about her extraordinary life, and her vision for the future.
