George Floyd’s America with Robert Samuels and Toluse Olorunnipa

podcast May 4, 2023


Background
share close

The Washington Post’s White House Bureau Chief Toluse Olorunnipa and The New Yorker’s Robert Samuels join us to discuss their book, His Name Is George Floyd: One Man’s Life and The Struggle for Racial Justice. The book was a finalist for the 2022 National Book Award for Nonfiction.

The writers discuss how the concept for the book came to be and why it was important to trace George Floyd’s ancestry as far back as the Civil War.

They also share their outlooks on where we are as a country today and what they hope readers take away from their book.
