In the News Law Man

January 13, 2009

“I've been in Washington now for almost 20 years, and the bitterest politics I've ever seen, in terms of getting personal and nasty, was on the Harvard Law Review.”
Bradford Berenson, Harvard Law, class of '91

As of 1991, the super-elite Harvard Law Review had not had a black president in its 104-year history. Then along came a young community organizer out of Chicago, with a knack for building bridges where none had been built before.

The story of how Barack Obama scaled the Harvard heights is told in Dreams of Obama, FRONTLINE's documentary biography of the man about to assume our highest office. You can see the entire program on PBS next Tuesday, inauguration night, or right now on our program Web page. Or you can watch the Law School excerpt on this page.
