Stories From The Edge of The Wine Glass: A Conversation About Race
/

Well, here’s a bit of a touchy subject. Race. So, why is it a touchy subject? Because we don’t talk about it the way it needs to be discussed? Because the events of the last few years have brought long-suppressed problems bubbling to the surface? Or do we simply not know how to start a conversation about race?

To jump-start a conversation about race, I enlisted the help of Derrick Johnson, an administrator at Florida College and current Doctoral candidate at the University of South Florida. (He’s also a wine guy, and you should follow him on Instagram @100Wines4U). We sat down in front of the mic, did our best to put the slime behind us (listen, and you’ll understand what I mean), and start this dialogue from the very beginning: I’m white, you’re black, what does that mean, and where do we go from here?
