Dr. Michael Lomax, president and CEO of the United Negro College Fund (UNCF), joins Innovators to assess the long-term impact of 2020's high-profile protests against systemic racism in the wake of the murders of George Floyd and other unarmed Black Americans. Dr. Lomax also talks about the ongoing pandemic that has claimed the lives of Black Americans at some of the highest rates in the country – two times higher than that of white Americans.

Dr. Lomax graduated from Morehouse College with an English degree, earned a master’s degree in English literature from Columbia University, and earned a doctorate in African American studies from Emory University. He became the president of UNCF in 2004.
