Zoom Webinar

This event has concluded. A video of the webinar can be found on Marin Coalition's Event Archives page.

At a time when most of us fear even a trip to the hardware store, we as Americans are facing not just a pandemic but also a crisis over our nation’s ability and willingness to confront the original sins of its founding: The subjugation and inequality perpetrated upon Black Americans throughout our history.

The tragic death of George Floyd was one of countless shameful incidents in the history of American racial disparity, yet somehow this time the reaction has been broader and seemingly more enduring.

This month, Marin Coalition is proud to announce that we are launching a series of virtual presentations with a special appearance by Noah Griffin, who will discuss his views on the present movement for social and racial equality. This and all our virtual events will be brought to the community free of charge as our effort to continue our series of dialogues while in-person meetings cannot be held.

We hope you’ll register to join us and will tune in on the 25th at noon to hear this timely and important discussion.

Speaker:

NOAH GRIFFIN, a San Francisco native, has been a fixture of Bay Area politics, arts and culture for his entire life. A graduate of Fisk University in Nashville, he went on to earn his J.D. from Harvard Law School before embarking on one of his several careers: Working beside some of California’s leading political and business figures. He has served on the staffs of such luminaries as former SF Mayor Frank Jordan, U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein, and investment guru Charles Schwab. He’s also hosted talk radio shows on KGO, KFRC and K-101; written op-ed pieces and served on the editorial board of the San Francisco Examiner; written for the Boston Globe; and appeared frequently in the Marin Independent Journal, where he also served on the editorial board.

Noah’s vocal performance career began with the San Francisco Boys Chorus and the San Francisco Cosmopolitan Opera. By the age of 12, he had shared the stage with Paul Robeson, Leontyne Price, Johnny Ray, Nat “King” Cole, and performed in Carmen, Turandot, and Boris Godunov. He later founded the Cole Porter Society which he directs with his wife Meredith.
