Black News Channel Presents The Life Of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg

Tallahassee, Florida The Black News Channel (BNC), the nation’s only culturally specific news channel that reflects the diverse views of the Black community, will air a one-hour special titled: BNC Presents: The Life and Legacy of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg Monday, September 21st, at 9:00 pm EST. The special, anchored by BNC News Prime anchors, Fred Hickman Laverne McGee, will follow the life and accomplishments of the dynamic trailblazer who was a leading voice for gender equality and civil liberties who also became a pop icon.

To many in the Black community, the passing of Justice Ginsburg opens the door to a potential Supreme Court appointee less concerned with the rights and protections the civil rights movement has fought for over the years. This special will explore these and other questions of interest to our viewing audience.
