On February 3rd, NOVA welcomes Angela Harrelson and Paris Stevens, the aunt and cousin of George Floyd, in a discussion about justice in the African-American community.

Angela Harrelson and Paris Stevens are the aunt and cousin of George Floyd. After the passing of his mother, Mr. Floyd moved to Minneapolis to be closer to his family and build a new life. An unmarried father of three, Mr. Floyd wanted to escape the low-income Houston neighborhood where he grew up. Ms. Harrelson promised George's mother that she would look after him. Before her nephew’s death, she felt people didn’t want to talk about racism and has sought to change that. Ms. Stevens and Ms. Harrelson are the co-chairs of the George Floyd Global Memorial.

This important discussion will take place on Thursday, February 3rd, from 4-5 PM at the Workforce Development Center on the Woodbridge Campus. This event is funded by a grant from the Micron Foundation.
