“The Talk” is a 75 minute poignant portrayal of a parent’s struggle to protect and prepare his child for the racially divided world we live in. It is written and performed by Sonny Kelly, a professional performer, storyteller, motivator, scholar and speaker. This one man performance draws upon the voices of ancestors, elders, youth and intellectuals to engage in the difficult conversations that we must have with our children if we are to prepare them to survive and thrive in a racialized America.
