KQED Life: Sun, Sep 1, 2013 -- 6:00 PM

Mark Shriver is as a Senior Vice President for Save the Children, but for a long time it was hard for him to embrace being a part of two legacies, the Kennedys and the Shrivers. With his book, A Good Man, Mark rediscovers his father Sargent Shriver's true legacy. Not just his great civic contributions as the creator of the Peace Corps and the architect of President Johnson's War on Poverty, but what it takes to be a truly Good Man, and reminds us of the lessons we all can learn from our parents even after they are gone.
