"The Talk: Race in America". A Screening & Dialogue Event

Moms of Black Boys United, Inc., Progressive Social Network of Baton Rouge, Love Alive Church and BREC are partnering to host a viewing of the PBS documentary, THE TALK-Race in America. The viewing will be followed by a panel discussion and a Meet & Greet to allow guests to intermingle and learn more about each organization.

THE TALK is a two-hour documentary about the increasingly necessary conversation taking place in homes and communities across the country between parents of color and their children, especially sons, about how to behave if they are ever stopped by the police. Parents of children of color should not have to have a "special" conversation with their children about police interactions. The panel discussion will examine the "why" behind this disparity and more.

They are bringing together a racially diverse audience to raise awareness about institutional racism and to discuss ways in which institutional racism can be identified, dismantled, and how disparities in policing based upon race can be eliminated. 

This event is free and open to the public. Please register via Eventbrite
