An Evening With Eric Holder

Saturday 10/15/2016

Jack Morton Auditorium, The George Washington University

Washington, D.C.

An Evening With Eric Holder is a one-on-one interview with former United States Attorney General Eric H. Holder, Jr., a dedicated public servant whose career has been committed to civil and human rights, and racial justice. Hosted by opinion writer for the Washington Post, and MSNBC contributor, Jonathan Capehart, An Evening With Eric Holder provides a rare inside look into the life and career of former U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder. This includes being raised as the child of immigrants from Barbados, to attending Columbia University and Columbia Law School, to his early lessons and growing pains as a young lawyer, and his subsequent public career and historic firsts. Holder would become the first African American to hold three of the nation’s most high-profile legal positions – U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia, Deputy U.S. Attorney General, and finally, U.S. Attorney General, the third longest-serving in the country’s history. Through it all, the audience will see a doting father, a faithful husband, and a light-hearted friend. Musical performances by singer, songwriter, and guitarist Raul Midón, as well as R&B singer and songwriter KEM make An Evening With Eric Holder a night that audiences will not soon forget.
