On May 25, George Floyd, an unarmed, 46 year old black man, was unconscionably killed by police in broad daylight during an arrest in Minneapolis. Captured on cell-phone video and amplified in the media, the whole world witnessed his horrific death and it has reignited a centuries-long conversation around racism in the United States and the injustice that African Americans can face at the hands of police and law enforcement.  The aftermath of George Floyd’s death – on top of the stacking of Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, Trayvon Martin, and Eric Garner just to name a few other horrific losses – has brought this nation to a threshold. As thousands of people have come together around the world with heavy hearts, humanity is speaking loud and clear: Enough is enough, the time is now to create real, lasting change. Beyond change, we need progress. As you’ll hear Tony say in this episode, change is automatic – but progress is not. In this 3-hour episode, Tony hosts a historic conversation with ten unique leaders who share their experience of what it is to be black America and lend their voice to what we – as a unified society – need to do at this pivotal moment to collectively unite, make progress, and ultimately tap into love, compassion, and connection to one another.  Podcast guests include: Benjamin Crump (George Floyd’s family lawyer), Lora King (Founder & Executive Director, The Rodney King Foundation), Officer Gomez (11-year veteran of the police force), Martin Luther King III (Global human rights leader), Sybrina Fulton (Trayvon Martin’s mother), Doc Rivers (Head Coach, Los Angeles Clippers), Bishop T.D. Jakes (Founder, The Potter’s House), Daryl Davis (R&B Musician and activist), Scott Shepherd (Reformed KKK leader), Dr. Michael Beckwith (Founder, Agape International Spiritual Center) To learn more, visit https://www.tonyrobbins.com/podcasts/a-historic-conversation-for-healing-and-unity
