As the creator of iconic programs like” All in the Family,” “The Jeffersons” and “Sanford and Sons,” NORMAN LEAR remade the culture of television. By tackling the most difficult issues of the day –racism, bigotry and civil rights – with humor and intelligence, he challenged the average American to confront their biases and personal politics. In his new memoir Even This I Get to Experience, Lear writes about his childhood influences, his early years in the entertainment business and his long involvement as a social activist. He joins Marty in the studio to tell his story.
