TOMORROW | Overcoming Racism and Renewing the Promise of America | Dr. Theodore Johnson @ 7p.m. ET March 31, via Zoom
“We can be different and united—the value of the American experiment is contingent on the truth of this proposition.”
—Theodore Roosevelt Johnson III
In the midst of our deep divisions, it's easy to be overwhelmed and confused about how to move forward as a people together. That's why we're bringing you Dr. Theodore R. Johnson, who lights a path ahead that we might travel together—with a wisdom, clarity and rare hopefulness that draws us in. He is someone we want you to meet.

Join us as Dr. Johnson makes an invitation to all of us, born of lived experience as a black son of the American south and love of this country he took an oath to preserve. Johnson is a military veteran who served as a White House Fellow and speechwriter to the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. He is currently a Senior Fellow and Director of the Fellows Program at the Brennan Center for Justice at the NYU School of Law. The program will be facilitated by Executive Director of Florida Humanities, Dr. Nashid Madyun (formerly with FAMU's Black Archives).
This is a conversation you will not soon forget.
"When the Stars Begin to Fall" is part of a multi-year digital series with Florida Humanities called "Unum, Democracy Reignited."
Others separate. We gather.
