At the age of 85, US. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has developed a lengthy legal legacy while becoming an unexpected pop culture icon. But the unique personal journey of her rise to the nation's highest court has been largely unknown, even to some of her biggest fans - until now. RBG explores Ginsburg's life and career.

PANELIST: Zion Tankard. Ms. Zion Tankard is a community advocate, and women's rights activist. Ms. Tankard's educational forte is in Family/Child Development and Business. Zion serves as co-facilitator for Partners Against Crime for District - 2; school board member for Voyager Academy, and also the current chair of the Durham County Women's Commission. Zion has a passion for community relations and healthy families. In 2016, Durham County became the first in the State of North Carolina to adopt a resolution for Counties For the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW) - Zion was instrumental in paving the way for this to occur. In 2017 Ms. Zion Tankard was nominated "Tar Heel of the Week," by the Durham News and Observer. Zion resides in her Durham, North Carolina home, with her husband and four children.

Popcorn and drinks will be provided.
