Through the Decades July 9
On July 9, Bill Kurtis of Through the Decades turns the lens of time back to 1978, when tens of thousands of people descended on the U.S. Capitol to march in support of the Equal Rights Amendment. Ellee Pai Hong recalls when Andy Warhol revealed his Campbell Soup Cans exhibit in 1962, and Kerry remembers the day in 1984 Attorney Stephen Bingham surrendered to authorities for his role in a deadly attempted prison escape. Bill revisits the story surrounding Rabbi Meir Kahane, who pled guilty in 1971 to a bomb making conspiracy charge, and Ellee goes back to 1981 for the release of Nintendo's Donkey Kong videogame. To close, Kerry profiles Oscar-winning actor and quintessential nice guy Tom Hanks.
