Watch President Obama and My Brother’s Keeper Alliance address the nation on the killing of George Floyd and others

“The killings of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and the loss of far too many Black lives to list, have left our nation anguished and outraged. While now is a time for grief and anger, it is also a time for resolve.”

Former President Barack Obama will on Wednesday make his first on-screen comments about the killing of George Floyd while in police custody and subsequent unrest.

Obama is expected to speak at 5 p.m. ET (2 p.m. PT) in a virtual town hall hosted by My Brother’s Keeper Alliance, a program that is part of his charitable Obama Foundation. 

The discussion, entitled “Reimagining policing in the wake of continued police violence,” will be livestreamed on and will center around the recurrent problem of racial bias in the criminal justice system.
