About this Event

Jeh Johnson is a native New Yorker, an attorney, the former General Counsel of the Air Force under President Bill Clinton, and the former Secretary of Homeland Security under President Barack Obama.

Mr. Johnson is also the grandson of the sociologist and first African American president of Fisk University, Charles S. Johnson, whose lifelong work included advocating for racial equality and the advancement of civil rights for African Americans and all ethnic minorities. After moving to New York City in the 1920s, Charles S. Johnson worked at the National Urban League, started several successful businesses, and was a key figure in the Harlem Renaissance.
