Talk about race by not talking about it

    The idea of talking about race might actually be more complicated than the discussion itself. That’s why, at a recent event sponsored by WHYY, the Penn Project for Civic Engagement and NewCORE, discussion groups meant to talk about race and Race — David Mamet’s Pulitzer Prize-winning play — began with some indirect talking points.

    WHYY’s Director of News and Civic Engagement Chris Satullo writes on Centre Square this week about his approach to discussions on race and how small moments from last week’s event have helped him decide which direction to go next.
