On Being (formerly Speaking of Faith)

With NEH funding, the long running NPR program On Being (formerly called Speaking of Faith) has produced a series of biographical programs of influential 20th-century historic figures: Sister Aimee Semple McPherson, Takanka Iyotaka (Sitting Bull), Albert Einstein, Charles Darwin, Abraham Joshua Heschel, and Reinhold Niebuhr. These portraits focus on their lives and thought, their spiritual development, the effect of their work on others, and their impact in contemporary society — bringing special attention to their religious context and milieu.

Board of Education case. Before he joined the Supreme Court, he was the nation's leading civil rights lawyer.
