As we finish up the Holiday Season, we also come to the end of Celebrating Christmas in the Underground. This week we say thank you to Marion Wright Edelman and Peter Edelman…my intellectual heroes. You know Marion Wright Edelman as the founder and President of the Children’s Defense Fund; her husband, Peter, is a law professor and Associate Dean at Georgetown University Law Center in Washington, D.C. Both have been diligent advocates of those in poverty and those under-served. Their focus has never waivered and they continue to be a beacon of hope to those who need the light the most. The Edelman’s are true heavy-weights in the fight for human rights and justice. Here is an excerpt of an interview with Marion Edelman Wright and Jennifer Lopez (J-Lo). Enjoy all the New Year’s festivities and remember our unsung heroes. elle T.
