PBS Tribute To Gwen Ifill
PBS pays tribute to late journalist Gwen Ifill with a 12-minute video created by her NewsHour colleagues sharing what they learned from her. Ifill died of uterine cancer last week after an almost 40-year career in journalism. Ifill was the rare Black woman to host a national political show making her the first. She was the first Black woman to moderate a vice-presidential debate. Ifill had many honors including several honorary doctorates, the Peabody Award and Harvard’s Goldsmith Award for Excellence in Journalism. Queen Latifah famously portrayed Ifill in a Saturday Night Live sketch after the 2008 debates.
