Former Atty. Gen. Eric Holder talks race at Carter library on Feb. 15

Former Atty. General Eric H. Holder Jr. will discuss “Race: The American Cauldron” during a program Feb. 15 at the Jimmy Carter Presidential Library & Museum.

Holder served as attorney general from 2009 to 2015.

The event will be held from 3 p.m. to 4:45 p.m. Wednesday at the the library, 441 Freedom Pkwy.N.E.

It will bring together scholars, civil rights leaders and policy administrators to discuss one of the most contentious topics facing the country today. Race is a hot button issue that ranges from police shootings and the recent presidential election to even President Trump’s political appointees.
