Description

Baratunde Thurston explores the phenomenon of white Americans calling the police on black Americans who have committed the crimes of ... eating, walking or generally "living while black." In this profound, thought-provoking and often hilarious talk, he reveals the power of language to change stories of trauma into stories of healing -- while challenging us all to level up.

he talks so calmly and it makes me so sad - he should be allowed to be upset and angry and not have to take you by the hand, suppress his emotions, just so that there is a chance hat you listen...

Baratunde speech was informative and moving; however, I had a had time following his speech. My mind drift frequently and the information did not stick. I would have to replay this message over and over before the information will stick. I would love the same inform deliver for the minds that have to multiple task at work.
