Anthony Lewis has covered the most important events of the past half-century in his long journalistic career. The two-time Pulitzer Prize winner has written eloquently about the Vietnam War, Watergate, apartheid in South Africa, among many other issues. A lecturer in law at Harvard Law School, Lewis frequently returned to the theme of the importance of law in a civil society. Anthony Lewis wrote his last column for the New York Times. Tonight, Lewis joins us for a look at his remarkable career — and an examination of the lessons the United States should take from the key events of its recent history.
