05/24/21

Tomorrow night, May 25, ABC News will air an hour-long special of their groundbreaking series “Soul of a Nation,” reflecting on the tragedy and racial reckoning that followed George Floyd’s death. Hosted by Tamron Hall and TJ Holmes, the installment will take a close look at the generation-defining moment and will attempt to provide insight on where the country goes after Derek Chauvin’s guilty verdict on the anniversary of Floyd’s death.

Tamron and the “GMA3: What You Need to Know” co-anchor will be joined by an array of familiar faces during the one-hour special. The program will entail in-depth interviews with George Floyd’s family, civil rights attorney Ben Crump, actor Kendrick Sampson, co-founder of Until Freedom Tamika D. Mallory, and president of National Action Network Rev. Al Sharpton. There will also be a musical performance by singer-songwriter Aloe Blacc and appearances from “The View” co-host Sunny Hostin, and others.

The special will take viewers to Minneapolis and Houston to give viewers a look at Floyd beyond the headlines, and examine how his story ultimately incited historic protests around the globe. From the toppling of several Confederate monuments to sports teams being rebranded to brands ditching their packaging, the ABC News-produced program will do a deep dive on how Floyd’s tragedy inspired change around the world.

“After Floyd: The Year that Shook the World – A Soul of a Nation Special” airs Tuesday, May 25 at 10:00p.m. EDT, on ABC. “Episodes are also available the next day on demand and on Hulu.”
