mikva 603x452Monday, October 19 at 9 pm on KRCB TV in the North Bay. This sweeping story of Chicago politician Abner Mikva chronicles both his rise from an impoverished childhood to an epic career as a legislator, federal judge, and White House Counsel, and how his work is being carried on today by his legacy organization, the Mikva Challenge. Prevailing over the powerful Daley machine, challenging the National Rifle Association, amending the Constitution to give 18-year-olds the right to vote, striking down the Pentagon's ban on gays in the military, and grappling with the 1978 neo-Nazi invasion of Skokie, IL this program is extremely timely for the 2020 election season.
