Congresswoman Barbara Jordan made history in 1974 when she delivered the opening statement for President Richard Nixon’s impeachment hearings. This moment launched the Texas politician into the national spotlight and set the tone for a career that carried out the promise of the American dream. This one-hour program explores the history of this remarkable woman and examines the limitations for Black, queer and women politicians both then and now.
