Juan Williams with Steve Scher
The Founding Fathers of Modern America

Juan Williams

Immigration policies, same-sex marriage, race relations, women in politics—nearly everything in America today is drastically different from what the Founding Fathers imagined when they set out to create all (Caucasian) men equal. In We the People, Fox political analyst Juan Williams (Eyes on the Prize, Enough) profiles contemporary founding fathers and mothers like President Reagan, Thurgood Marshall, First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt, Betty Friedan, and the activists behind the Stonewall Riots, for a complete picture of America. In conversation with veteran host Steve Scher, Williams will offer a probing look at how far we’ve come as a nation in the past 200 years. He’ll also explain how these leaders still echo part of the Founding Fathers’ original vision despite drastic social and political shifts.
