The Marc Steiner Show

The Breakthrough: Politics and Race in the Age of Obama

August 10, 2015 – Segment 1gwen

We begin our show with a special archive edition from 2009, when Marc talked with Gwen Ifill, moderator and managing editor for Washington Weekand co-anchor and co-managing editor of PBS NewsHour, about her book The Breakthrough: Politics and Race in the Age of Obama. Her book examines the rising generation of Black political leaders, and explores the ways in which these young politicians could change American politics and significantly transform the Black political establishment.
