Featured Webinar Speaker: Isaiah “Ike” McKinnon, Ph.D., Jesuit educated, former deputy mayor and chief of police of the City of Detroit, retired associate professor of education at the University of Detroit Mercy, author, and graduate of the FBI National Academy and the United States Secret Service School.
In the wake of the police killing of George Floyd last May, outcry and demonstrations sprang up in cities throughout the United States. Debates ensued not just over the techniques police use to subdue suspects, but also the role of police in our communities. During the debates, one man’s story of creating lasting change rose to national prominence. Isaiah McKinnon, former chief of police and deputy mayor of Detroit, exemplifies a life dedicated to creating the change you want to see in the world. As a young police officer, he experienced racism firsthand, and as a public servant, he rose to positions of authority in which he could do something about it.
