Recorder: The Marion Stokes Project

Season 21 Episode 18 | 1h 26m 5s Video has closed captioning.

A fiercely intelligent activist who became a wealthy recluse in her later years, Marion Stokes was dedicated to furthering and protecting the truth — so much so that she recorded American television 24 hours a day for over 30 years. Recorder: The Marion Stokes Project peels back the curtain on her life, through a mix of Stokes’ archive of recordings and interviews with those who knew her best.
