An evening with the Ifill
Last week I had the pleasure of seeing and meeting Gwen Ifill and her cousin Sherrilyn Ifill , civil rights attorney, at the Enoch Pratt Free Library. I have to tell you I don't know if they did this stuff at the Chicago Libraries but the Baltimore city library is kicking ass!
For those unfamiliar Gwen is a Journalist and author. She recently came into attention on the national stage because republicans tried to block her as moderator for the 2008 Vice Prediential debate because she had a book (already done) scheduled to come out called "The Breakthrough: Politics and Race in the Age of Obama" and their was a feeling she might be impartial.
Gwen has been carried in The New York Times, Washington Post, and several major newspapers.
