My Race Talk: “How Quiet Can 1000 People Be?”

“How quiet can 1,000 people be?  When Valarie Kaur spoke at a noontime gathering November 10, the Minneapolis Convention Center was so silent that the only sound was that of the muted traffic from nearby 12th Street.  Kaur, the keynote speaker at It’s Time To Talk: Forums on Race, held the audience spellbound as she asked us to remember and experience again the feeling of being an outsider.  The seventh annual gathering was invigorating and inspiring.”

– Becky Roloff, CEO of the Young Women’s Christian Association of Minnesota
