Former U.S. Surgeon General Dr. Joycelyn Elders

Former U.S. Surgeon General Dr. Joycelyn Elders sits down with Steve Sanders for an interview.

She’s outspoken, she’s controversial, and she certainly isn’t shy! Dr. Joycelyn Elders started life out as a sharecropper’s daughter and made her way into the lofty position of United States Surgeon General. In this position, she was candid in her assessment of sexuality in America, and particularly how it is taught to youngsters. Her candor cost her the job, but she continued to pursue her educational agenda and became one of the nation’s leading authorities on the topic of young sexuality. Steve Sanders hosts an hour-long interview with Dr. Elders.
