RBG: Her Legacy & the Court’s Future, A PBS Newshour Special

  • Fred Vigeant

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 – 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 the NewsHour and PBS have done in the past — and a wide range of voices of people explaining what RBG meant to them.

Join us for RGB: Her Legacy & The Court’s Future Thursday September 24 at 8:00pm.

WITF also encores an hour long interview between Ruth Bader Ginsburg and NPR’s Nina Totenburg. Join us for Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg In Conversation Friday September 25 at 7:00pm on WITF.


Due to the last minute addition of RGB: Her Legacy & The Court’s Future on Thursday, the following changes are made to the television schedule:

  • Battling Opioids previously scheduled at 8:00pm shifts to 9:00pm
  • Sherlock on Masterpiece previously scheduled at 9:00pm shifts to 10:00pm
  • Lucy Worlsey’s Royal Myths and Secrets previously scheduled at 10:30pm is removed.  This program recently aired and is available on-demand via the PBS Video app and through our website.
