Let’s talk about the beautiful ideal of liberty and justice for all. We love America. Because America is not just a country, it’s an idea, and ideas need to be revisited every now and then.
That time is now because things need to change now. So let’s have this conversation because one good conversation can shift the direction of change forever.
We want to talk. We want you to listen. We want you to talk. We want to listen.
We believe that if we can engage in a REAL conversation, we can all make a difference.
Participants who self-identify to engage in this experience agree to the completion of prework before entering into the group discussion. This prework is a multimedia collection of content reflecting the
truth about the history of racism in the United States and the impact it continues to have on our society today. Completion of the prework serves to provide a common foundational understanding of the issue. The A Long Talk experience is orchestrated as a series of reflective conversations, where participants are asked to listen, view, and respond in real-time. The conversations take place in large and small group settings using the breakout rooms feature.

“‘A Long Talk’ is a powerful look at this country’s history founded on the concept of the supremacy of whites and the utilization of Black people to build the economy that would lead to the US becoming the richest in the world. It provides the context for why we are where we currently are in terms of
racial inequality. It pushes each of us to confront our complicity in the status quo and make a choice to stand on the side of racial injustice and inequality or join the fight and become an anti-racist ally committed to act in impactful ways.”

"In my 24 years as a white college basketball coach, the ‘A Long Talk’ presentation lead by Kyle Williams was the most impactful and eye-opening education I have received. It made me see where I was and I am and where I need to go as a leader of young black men. We all have work to do and "A Long Talk" helped me realize I can't waste time."
