“Matt Taibbi is [Hunter S.] Thompson's heir.” — Seattle Post-Intelligence

Millions watched the video of the death of Eric Garner after a police officer put him in a “chokehold” during an arrest for selling loose cigarettes, galvanizing a wave of Black Lives Matter organizing and protests. Best-selling polemic journalist Matt Taibbi comes to CHF to explore the compelling story of the roots of Garner’s death, the grand jury, the media circus, the subsequent murder of two police officers, and the protests from every side. Join us for a riveting conversation on urban America, the perversion of its policing, and the racial tensions that threaten to tear it apart.
