This made my heart soar. A family that adopted an African American child have been posting pix of the notable Black women she dresses up to emulate during Black History Month. This is her depiction of Gwen Ifill. I love this. But more importantly, Gwen would have LOVED this

Love this wonderful photograph. And thinking how much Gwen would have too. @PBS @washingtonweek @NewsHour @wetatvfm

We will miss Joe Duffey. He was one of the great ones, with an influence spanning many decades and an interest in helping people, including a young documentary filmmaker just getting started on his first film.

Charley Pride left us his voice. The industry was overwhelmingly white when Pride's career took off in the 1960s, but Pride's talent was undeniable, catapulting him to the top of the charts over and over again. Learn more in the UNUM playlist below. #BHM

My spouse is simultaneously reading a book on Hemingway while participating in a virtual PBS discussion series over the upcoming @KenBurns Hemingway documentary. And she thinks I’m the nerd for liking board games...🤔

Hope she watches our film on @PBS starting April 5. And thanks for watching our event tonight.
