"This week we say thank you to Marion Wright Edelman and Peter Edelman…my intellectual heroes. You know Marion Wright Edelman as the founder and President of the Children’s Defense Fund; her husband, Peter, is a law professor and Associate Dean at Georgetown University Law Center in Washington, D.C. Both have been diligent advocates of those in poverty and those under-served. Their focus has never waivered and they continue to be a beacon of hope to those who need the light the most. The Edelman’s are true heavy-weights in the fight for human rights and justice. Here is an excerpt of an interview with Marion Edelman Wright and Jennifer Lopez (J-Lo). Enjoy all the New Year’s festivities and remember our unsung heroes. elle T"
