On this special episode of Floor 9, we bring you a thought-provoking and important conversation with the legendary Nikole Hannah Jones, a Pulitzer Prize winning journalist for covering civil rights and racial injustice for The New York Times Magazine and creator of the 1619 project. Conducted as part of the 2020 UM Impact Day, this conversation between Nikole and Deidre Smalls-Landau, CMO and EVP, Global Culture at UM, dives into the history of institutional racism, the current #BLM movement against racial injustice and police brutality, and how we can be a better advocate and ally for racial equality.
