More about the notorious Ruth Bader Ginsberg

Ruth Bader Ginsberg is so much in the news these days, it’s time to mention her on Choices again.

The Los Angeles Times reported this morning: “The latest in RBG fever: The first museum exhibition about the justice’s life and work, “Notorious RBG: The Life and Times of Ruth Bader Ginsburg,” opening Friday at the Skirball Cultural Center.”

Why an exhibit now: the people at the Skirball feel “there’s an urgency now to her message, and the message of the exhibition, which is ‘work hard, stay the course, things will be difficult, but that doesn’t mean they’re hopeless.’” The exhibition, co-organized by Skirball associate curator Cate Thurston and the co-authors, Irin Carmon and Shana Knizhnik of the book Notorious RBG, marks the 25th anniversary of Bader Ginsburg’s 1993 start on the Supreme Court.

An organization I’ve been involved in since the election of president number forty-five called South Bay Cares has the mission to: Educate. Empower. Engage. South Bay Cares was founded as a source of education and to be an arbiter of positive action so that members can be the change that we want to see in the world.

That said we have championed Ruth Bader Ginsberg as well. South Bay Cares will host a screening of the RBG documentary on October 30 at the Vistamar School in El Segundo California with a discussion to follow. If you will be in the Los Angeles South Bay area, here’s the flyer and link for purchasing tickets at Brown Paper Tickets. We hope to see your there. This documentary is not to be missed.
