The Talk 

Adapted and Directed by Michelle Zielinski from Derek Patterson's art piece entitled "Letters to Mom and Dad," The Black Mirror Theatre Company has revisited one of our short plays produced in December of 2018 which examines race and the sober communication Black families still have to protect their sons and daughters from institutional racism and police abuse. And while "The Talk" wouldn't have saved George Floyd or Breonna Taylor or Ahmaud Arbery or Sandra Bland or Tamir Rice or Elijah Glay or Walter Wallace, Jr., we feel it's time to be reminded of this reality and to strive forward for a better America.
