Description

  • The Talk: Race in America documents the increasingly common conversation taking place in homes and communities across the country between parents of color and their children, especially sons, about how to behave if they are ever stopped by the police. In many homes, "The Talk," as it is called, usually contains phrases like this: If you are stopped by the police:
    Always answer 'yes sir, no sir'; never talk back; don't make any sudden movements; don't put your hands in your pockets.

    A diverse set of filmmakers speak to parents, children, family members, academics, police force members, and community activists, to illustrate the issue from multiple points of view and bring the discussion out of the kitchens and living rooms and into the public sphere.

    This DVD features subtitles in English (SDH)
