Barbara Lee: Speaking Truth to Power
Now Playing - Sep 30, 2021
Barbara Lee: Speaking Truth to Power tells the complex story of Representative Barbara Lee, a steadfast voice for human rights, peace, and equality in the U.S. Congress for over two decades, who raised two sons as a single mother on food stamps, and was the lone vote in opposition to the broad authorization of military force following the September 11th attacks.
An all-star cast including Senator Cory Booker, Rep. John Lewis, Rep. Ayanna Pressley, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, commentator Van Jones, actor Danny Glover and author Alice Walker all share insights about what makes Barbara Lee unique as a public servant and as a truth-telling African American woman.
