I came across the next very interesting video clip. I know you gals admire the Notorious RBG as much as I do. Sweet beans!

Patrice Michaels, composer/soprano/creator and daughter-in law of Justice Ginsburg, music director Kuang-Hao Huang, pianist Andrew Harley, Inscape Chamber Orchestra, and a cappella ensemble Capital Hearings give a special performance of “The Long View: A Portrait of Ruth Bader Ginsburg in Nine Songs.”

The 40-minute song cycle illuminates key aspects of Justice Ginsburg’s personal and professional life through letters, remembrances, conversations, and court opinions to reveal a life dedicated to justice and convey the important relationship between the Supreme Court and the Constitution.

Following the performance, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg joins National Constitution Center President and CEO Jeffrey Rosen to discuss his new book, Conversations with RBG: Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on Life, Love, Liberty and Law—an informal portrait of the Justice through an extraordinary series of conversations, starting in the 1990s and continuing to today. The discussion will explore several of their conversations featured in the book, such as, Justice Ginsburg’s favorite dissents, the cases she would most like to see overruled, how to be a good listener, and how to lead a productive, compassionate life.

The National Constitution Center gratefully acknowledges the Bernstein Family Foundation for its generous support of our education programs in Washington D.C. This program is made possible in part through support from the John Templeton Foundation.
