An Intimate Conversation About the Individual and Family Experiences of Race and Cultural Identity

Mar 14, 2024

11:30am – 12:30pm CT

When the topic of race comes up, it’s rarely brief. But what if you had to summarize your feelings in six words? Could you do it? Emmy and Peabody award-winning journalist Michele Norris explores those stripped-down thoughts—those kernels of truth—in her book, Our Hidden Conversations. Join her in conversation with her power-couple counterpart, Broderick Johnson, Chair of My Brother’s Keeper Taskforce, as they discuss how race has shaped their personal and professional lives. This honest and intimate conversation will span the light-hearted to the painful truths—nothing will be off limits!
