Not in Southern California? U.S. satellite subscribers can watch this KCETLink program on LinkTV.
In this exclusive special produced by KCETLink, United States Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor talks to actress/activist Eva Longoria about her new book, "My Beloved World". This is the premiere program of "KCETLink Presents", a series that will offer enlightening and unique specials to audiences on KCET and Link TV.
Justice Sotomayor, the first Hispanic -- and third woman -- to sit on the United States Supreme Court, spoke of her humble beginnings in the Bronx housing projects, her struggles to learn English and to overcome financial hardships, as well as her courageous choices and inspiring successes. She also cited the classic television series "Perry Mason" as a major inspiration for her to pursue a career in law. Justice Sotomayor was delighted to learn that 90-year old Barbara Hale, who played Della Street in that series, was in the audience for this event.
Eva Longoria, a well-known as a television and movie actress, was a perfect choice to moderate this discussion. Her tireless advocacy efforts help Latinas build better futures for themselves. She has established her own foundations and works with leading minority rights organizations, such as MALDEF, to make a difference in the Latino community. The event was recorded at the Saban Theatre in Beverly Hills, California.
