Representative Furse passed away on April 18, 2021. This conversation took place in January of 2021. 

Furse was the first African-born member of Congress. Her life as an activist began with anti-apartheid work in her native South Africa. She and Barbara talk about Furse's work for social justice and tribal rights. Furse served three terms from Oregon's First Congressional District.
