Sargent Shriver Interview with KDKA-TV

While he was running for Vice President on the McGovern ticket in 1972, Sargent Shriver gave an interview with KDKA-TV in Pittsburgh, PA. In this short clip, the interviewer notes that the McGovern campaign had been very welcoming to “women and minorities,” and he asks Shriver about women and Black candidates being on the Presidential ticket and running in other elections. Shriver’s responses show both his optimism and his enthusiasm for inclusion.

Peace requires the simple but powerful recognition that what we have in common as human beings is more important and crucial than what divides us.
