We at the PBS NewsHour and Washington Week lost our dear colleague, Gwen Ifill, to cancer on Monday. During her life, she often was called upon to discuss journalism, barriers and how to burst through them, and sometimes just react to something fun.
Gwen Ifill was moderator and managing editor of "Washington Week" and co-anchor and managing editor of the "PBS NewsHour." The best-selling author of "The Breakthrough: Politics and Race in the Age of Obama," Gwen covered seven presidential campaigns and moderated two vice presidential debates.
