    TALK - Talks are 90-minute electrifying, action-inspiring onstage programs, featuring four to six world class thought leaders who each present ideas on a single theme through either an individual presentation or a one-on-one conversation with a host.

    This timely and powerful discussion will examine the complex and lingering legacy of slavery, exposing its present-day effects on every aspect of American life. This event is your chance to hear from Nikole Hannah-Jones, the New York Times correspondent who sparked the idea for this project, as well as other influential contributors and artists who have left their mark on this important initiative and its national impact.
