To mark the passing of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, WHRO TV will air a special program this Thursday. (Note that this program will take the place of This Old House and Ask This Old House.)

At this moment, the country is mourning a historic civil rights figure and a cultural icon, and we are also being torn further in political acrimony over the fight to fill her seat.

PBS NewsHour will focus on both of these major themes, with conversations with people who knew and worked with Ginsburg, others who carry her work forward in the law, as well as reporting on the battle to replace her – how that is changing the remaining days of the campaign, and also possibly the very structure and nature of the Senate and the Court themselves.

Along with these thoughtful conversations and news making interviews, we also will include Ruth Bader Ginsburg in her own words – from various interviews the PBS NewsHour and PBS have done in the past -- and a wide range of voices of people explaining what RBG meant to them.
