Despite the history of racism in the United States being unique in many respects, the murder of George Floyd sparked protests across the globe. Has the movement transcended the moment – and the unique American story of race – toward a greater understanding of the commonalities of humanity? Or is something else at play? Join Valerie Jarrett, Chief Executive Officer and a member of the board of directors of the Barack Obama Foundation, and Michael Nutter, a Distinguished Senior Fellow at Harris and a former Mayor of Philadelphia, for a fireside chat about what the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King called the “arc of the moral universe” – and its current trajectory.
