With integrity, honesty, and tenacity, Gwen Ifill moderated town halls and debates like no one else – her breakthrough made it possible for Black women to get through, and keep moving forward.

Author of, The Breakthrough: Politics and Race in the Age of Obama, Gwen Ifill was unfaltering and firm, when asking tough questions, regardless of the issue or the individual.

“Journalists are accused of being lapdogs when they don’t ask the hard questions, but then accused of being rude when they do. Good thing we have tough hides.” Gwen Ifill
