NOVA to host webinar with former Attorney General Eric Holder to discuss race in America, Oct. 15

Eric Holder, Former Attorney General

Please join us for a special conversation about race in America with the Honorable Eric Holder, 82nd attorney general of the United States. This event is part of NOVA’s annual Dr. Joseph Windham Series on Race Relations. The ‘Windham Series’ is a unique opportunity to learn about the history and current climate of race in America.

Mr. Holder served as Attorney General from February 2009 to April 2015. As the third longest serving attorney general in U.S. history and the first African American to hold that office, Holder is an internationally-recognized leader across a broad range of regulatory enforcement, criminal justice, and national security issues. In 2014, Time magazine named him to its list of 100 Most Influential People, noting that he had “worked tirelessly to ensure equal justice.”

Including his tenure as Attorney General, Mr. Holder has served in government for more than thirty years, having been appointed to various positions requiring U.S. Senate confirmation by Presidents Obama, Clinton and Reagan.

This virtual event will be on Thursday, October 15, at 1:30 p.m. You must register in advance at https://vccs.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_BPOROqxyQg2B7eonJqOOEg. This event is free and open to press and the public. It is sponsored by the NOVA Institute for Public Service.
