About this show

Voice of Good Hope paints an extraordinary portrait of an extraordinary woman--from 1966, when Barbara Jordan became the first black representative since 1883 to win an election to the Texas legislature, to 1972, when Jordan became the first black woman from the deep south ever to be elected to the U.S. House of Representatives. Two years later, Jordan captured the national spotlight when her carefully measured, pull-no-punches criticism of President Richard Nixon made headlines during the Chief Executive's impeachment hearings. By the time Jordan died at the age of 59 in 1996--just two years after receiving the Presidential Medal of Freedom--it was clear that she had created a legacy of well-tendered, uncompromising opinions and astounding political courage. Appropriate For Ages: 12+
