GUESTS: Lani Guinier Professor of Law, University of Pennsylvania Law School, Philadelphia, PA Author, Lift Every Voice: Turning A Civil Rights Setback Into A New Vision of Social Justice [Simon and Schuster, 1998] In 1993 President Clinton abandoned his support of Lani Guinier as his choice for Assistant Attorney General (AAG) for Civil Rights, concurring with her critics that some of her views were anti-democratic. Now Guinier has written a memoir about her controversial AAG nomination and her new vision of the civil rights movement. Guinier joins Ray Suarez to discuss her experience with the Clinton White House and her work as a civil rights activist.
