A two-part extended interview with Laverne Cox, an actress, producer, activist and transgender woman, and African-American transgender activist CeCe McDonald. McDonald was released last month after 19 months in prison. She was arrested in 2011 after using deadly force to protect herself from a group of people who attacked her on the streets of Minneapolis. Her case helped turn a national spotlight on the violence and discrimination faced by transgender women of color. She is joined by Cox, who was there with McDonald the day she left prison. Cox stars in the Netflix show, Orange is the New Black.
Broadcast on February 19, 2014.
