SJI is proud to serve as a Community Partner for this special event.

After Michael Brown, Eric Garner, Tamir Rice and Freddie Gray were all killed by police, setting off protests in their respective cities, Washington Post reporter Wesley Lowery began to question the data around police shootings. His inquiry spurred The Post's investigative data-gathering project The Fatal Force, which won the 2016 Pulitzer Prize for National Reporting.

Lowery's experiences traveling across the country covering police shootings are chronicled in his book They Can’t Kill Us All: Ferguson, Baltimore, and a New Era in America's Racial Justice Movement. In it, he also describes the events that led to the rise of the Black Lives Matter movement and how black activists used social media to elevate their message.

Join us for a conversation with Shaker Heights High School graduate and Pulitzer Prize winner Wesley Lowery on the ongoing struggle between law enforcement, race, and justice.
