The 17th Season Premiere episode of IN THE LIFE, "Civil Rites & Civil Rights", takes an in-depth look at the journey to marriage equality in America's most populous state, and the real possibility that this newly gained right could be erased with the passage of the Proposition 8 referendum in November. In "A Conversation With....", Jonathan Capehart, Pulitzer Prize editorial writer at the Washington Post talks with Julian Bond, Chair of the NAACP about the intersections of gay rights, civil rights, and marriage equality. The episode concludes with Mayor Gavin Newsom of San Francisco presiding at the nuptials of a couple together for over 50 years, who could finally say "We're Married!"

I got a chance to watch the full episode a little early. OMG - this is one of the best darned IN THE LIFE episodes yet. The Del Martin section will move you to tears.

And can I just say how much I love Julian Bond? I saw him speak in person at Creating Change and he's one of the most powerful speakers I've seen in a long time.

I couldn't care less what the NAACP thinks. After they defended Michael Vick (after all "they're only dogs!") they became irrelevant to me.
