Leroy Barber :: What is “The Talk”?

  • “‘The Talk’ in the African American community, for our boys, is if they get pulled over or approached by police, don’t escalate the situation, answer questions the officer asks you, keep your hands where they can be seen, and get out of that situation alive,” says Leroy Barber, Author and Global Executive Director of Word Made Flesh. “You will have your day to defend yourself in court, but leave that situation alive.”
