START THE CONVERSATION
“No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.” ~ Nelson Mandela
The Real Talk Project was founded with the understanding that education, knowledge and empowerment are some of the keys to creating long lasting social change ... change that leads to a world in which we can all be free to just be.
Our work is grounded in Black Feminist thought and we deeply believe that dismantling systems of patriarchy are central to creating schools and communities free from violence. That being said, an intersectional lens is key because "None of us are free until all of us are free".
