Taped in front of a live audience at the New York Times Center and hosted by veteran PBS-TV news journalist Gwen Ifill, An Evening With Ursula Burns, is a one-on-one interview of Ursula Burns, the CEO of Xerox. The program explores the life and career of Burns, the first African American woman to head a Fortune 500 company. The audience watches in amazement as the interview provides an inside look into this business and civic icon. A lifelong New Yorker, Ursula Burns tells of her poor upbringing on the Lower East Side of Manhattan, and her meteoric rise through the Xerox corporate ranks. Intermixed throughout the program are live appearances from Paul Allaire, Anne Mulcahy, and Vernon Jordan, as well as Marva Smalls, and Burns husband, daughter, son and sister: Lloyd Bean, Malcolm Bean, Melllisa Bean and Deborah Eastman.
