Southfield (CBS Detroit) – The death of George Floyd, the 46-year-old African American by Minneapolis police, has become a rallying cry for justice and change as demonstrations in Detroit and other cities have continued. It has also become a catalyst for conversations about race, social justice and equality.
Three leaders – Alessandro DiNello, President & CEO of Flagstar Bank, Rocky Raczkowski, Chairman of the Oakland County Republican Party, and Brian Tauber, CEO of CPP Global – appear on CBS 62’s MICHIGAN MATTERS this Sunday to talk about these vital issues with Senior Producer/Host Carol Cain.
It’s the first of an occasional series of “Michigan Matters” shows that will feature leaders from different races, different backgrounds – to talk about these issues which have come to define our region and nation in so many ways.
