The Murder of George Floyd: A Nation Responds to Bow on ID


Investigation Discovery (ID) is set to air The Murder of George Floyd: A Nation Responds, a one-hour special hosted by Tony Harris.

The murder of George Floyd in Minneapolis on May 25 mobilized the U.S., with mass protests and a groundswell of activism taking place across the country. Featuring a panel of law enforcement, press, activists and crusaders discussing these recent events and how we can take tangible actions to make long-lasting change, The Murder of George Floyd: A Nation Responds will premiere on ID tonight (June 9).

Panelists will include PBS Newshour Correspondent and NBC and MSNBC Political Contributor Yamiche Alcindor; former Baltimore Police Commissioner Kevin Davis; racial justice attorney, author and activist Lurie Favors; Redditt Hudson, co-founder of the National Coalition of Law Enforcement Officers for Justice, Reform and Accountability; and Deray McKesson, a civil rights activist and organizer of Campaign Zero.

The Murder of George Floyd: A Nation Responds, produced for Investigation Discovery by October Films, will be simulcast on Facebook Watch and YouTube during the network airing. It will lead into the global premiere of OWN’s OWN Spotlight: Where Do We Go from Here hosted by Oprah Winfrey, which will simulcast across every Discovery network in the U.S.

Harris said: “The arc of the moral universe is bending right before our eyes with this huge, global outcry for change. Now is the time to continue to push the discussion forward. This panel includes leaders who are entrenched in this movement, some with varying viewpoints, and I’m proud to share their thoughts with ID’s viewers.”
