The Talk with Sonny Kelly

January 30 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

On behalf of the Department of Athletics in partnership with the Counseling Center & Prevention Services, TRIO Programs, The Black Male Initiative, Poole College of Management, Multicultural Student Affairs, and the African American Cultural Center, we invite you to join us in a continued conversation about diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging.

Please join us Monday, Jan. 30 from 7-9pm in Witherspoon Cinema as we kick off Black History Month with an entertaining play and performance, called “The Talk”, that will stimulate thought, foster dialogue and bridge community.  

The Talk features Sonny Kelly, actor and storyteller, who plays over 20 characters and embodies a conversation Sonny had to have with his young son about race in America.  The show, however, is more than a conversation between a man and his son. Kelly uses pieces of history, literature and lived experiences to create a discussion point about the vast range of experiences of people in America.
