Connections: How to have conversations about race

Jan 17, 2019

Talking about race is difficult for many people. Jackie Campbell of the Children’s Agenda specializes in helping people sit down together and open their hearts and minds. Her approach has led to some emotional and powerful breakthroughs. We asked her to share how she does it.

Campbell joins us in studio for the hour with her colleagues from Table 23, a small group of community members who meet to discuss issues surrounding race. Our guests:

  • Jackie Campbell, director of ROC the Future at The Children’s Agenda, and member of Table 23
  • Alan Ziegler, member of the Rochester Area Business Ethics Foundation, and member of Table 23
  • Heidi Zimmer-Meyer, president of the Rochester Downtown Development Corporation, and member of Table 23
