Event Details

During a violent protest in Omaha, days after George Floyd’s murder, a young Black man was shot by a white bar owner. Both men would be dead by the same hand before it was all over. Vermont-based journalist Joe Sexton started investigating the tragedy, which took all manner of false turns on social media, and wound up writing a book: The Lost Sons of Omaha, published to critical acclaim in May 2023.


In an appearance geared toward aspiring journalists, Sexton explains how he reported the story the Washington Post described as “a brilliant and nuanced new work of investigative journalism.”


Last year Sexton, who now lives in Williston, also penned the shocking exposé “The Loss of Grace” for Seven Days about child abuse at Woodside Juvenile Detention Facility. It’s the longest story the local newspaper has ever published.


This event is sponsored by Seven Days and the UVM Community News Service.
