A conversation with Robert J. Cox about his work and the documentary Messenger on a White Horse.
The documentary powerfully describes how in the late 1970s, Bob Cox, as he is known to colleagues, risked his life to publish news stories about the shocking human rights crimes of Argentina's military dictators. Decades later, his life's work still has an impact on the human rights community—informing the search for truth, justice and historical memory.
