CLICK HERE TO LISTEN TO THE MOST UPDATED VERSION OF THE BLACK TALK.
 
How old were you when you first learned that police may think of you as a threat?
 
You’ve never been told that?
 
Chances are you’re not African American. In this episode, Trey Kay examines “The Black Talk,” which is the sober conversation that many black families have with their teenage kids – particularly teenage boys – about how they should conduct themselves when stopped by the police.

 
Spoiler alert: Black parents, like any parent, want their kids to come home alive.
 
We’ll also learn from a chapter of Charleston, West Virginia’s Civil Rights legacy from a minister mentored by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
