An evening with author Robert Samuels

Robert Samuels is the co-author of His Name is George Floyd: One Man’s Life and the Struggle for Racial Justice and an award-winning Washington Post reporter. He shares the backstory of systemic racism in George Floyd's America, taking you inside his world and his family's lifetime of challenges that led up to his horrific death in Minneapolis. Through interviews with those who knew Floyd and an in-depth review of the Minneapolis police force, he paints a picture of Floyd the man, and the tragic circumstances surrounding the end of his life.

This presentation will spark discussions about the roots of racism, both past and present, and how one person can make a difference to create change.
