In recent years, Americans have increasingly talked about race. But many would question whether we’ve gotten better at talking about race, or if we’re worse at it than ever. So much is said that is hurtful, yet not saying something may be perceived as saying something.

On this episode of Let’s Talk, Jackie Hill Perry, Jasmine Holmes, and Melissa Kruger give practical advice from their own experience for how to talk constructively about race. They discuss why critical race theory has become so controversial, and they talk about books that have helped them understand the history of race relations in America.

Above all, they conclude that it’s not what you say or don’t say that determines whether you can have a productive conversation about race; it’s whether you come to a discussion with compassion and humility.
