Prescient RBG, first of kind in state at Capitol only asked: “Take their feet off our necks”

by Quendrith Johnson, Los Angeles Correspondent

U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, born Mar. 15, 1933, passed away on Friday, Sept. 18 at age 87, and is now the first woman to lie in state at the Capitol of the United States of America.  Remarkably, when she was 84 Magnolia Pictures released RBG, about her life. RBGLiesinState2020The tagline is “Hero. Icon. Dissenter," and this documentary brings into sharp focus the role of a fighter on the Nation’s highest court who made a difference every day, just by her presence alone and the groundbreaking spirit of change she represented. She merely asked her "Brethern" to "take their feet off our necks," for equality - far in advance of the neck-kneeling incidents recently that have ignited protests world-wide, beginning in the States.

Here’s a quick synopsis and look at RBG from Magnolia Pictures

At the age of 84, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has developed a breathtaking legal legacy while becoming an unexpected pop culture icon. But without a definitive Ginsburg biography, the unique personal journey of this diminutive, quiet warrior's rise to the nation's highest court has been largely unknown, even to some of her biggest fans – until now. RBG is a revelatory documentary exploring Ginsburg 's exceptional life and career from Betsy West and Julie Cohen, and co-produced by Storyville Films and CNN Films.

Meanwhile, the elegant depth of her Constitutional Law knowledge as well as the history of women’s rights in the law books is legendary. Read an actual RBG speech here from her own account of “Lessons Learned” on the way to becoming an icon in her own right.

You can watch RBG at home, while she lies in state, to remind us how change continues after death.

Saluting RBG, as she become known, may her influence resonate in the country and The Supreme Court.
