Tell Me The Truth

​Telling the Truth: Exploring the Heart of Cross-Racial Conversations

February 25, 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Free

How can we speak openly and honestly in cross-racial conversations? What would such a conversation even look like?

Shay Stewart-Bouley (Black) and Debby Irving (White) show us as they share racism’s impact on their lives and how cross-racial conversation has been instrumental in their own understanding of 21st century racial dynamics. Shay and Debby will explore the common fears and pitfalls of cross-racial conversation that keep people isolated in their own racial groups, at the expense of personal, professional, and societal growth. They’ll also help audience members understand how interpersonal social patterns hinder organizations from living up to their own ideals for diversity. No two conversations are alike as they step on stage with no agenda. Current events, in their own lives and in the larger world, inspire the organic conversation they engage in. Finally, Shay and Debby will offer suggestions to create racial justice habits that can help build positive, sustainable change.

The event is free and open to all.
