One Small Step: A Night of Courageous Conversation







One Small Step: A Night of Courageous Conversation, hosted by NPR’s Elise Hu, will be an evening where we reach across the political divide to understand those with whom we disagree. Together with WBHM, NPR, and StoryCorps, explore how the small step of talking across divides – and hearing each other – helps mend the fraying fabric of our nation.

 

Elise will be joined by guests Dave Isay, founder of StoryCorps; Erick Erickson, a conservative evangelical American blogger and radio host; and LaTosha Brown, co-founder of Black Voters Matter Fund and an organizer, philanthropic consultant, and political strategist. Jimmy Hall with Southern Culture Revival will provide music. This inspirational show in three acts will include multimedia presentations, audience interaction, music, and most importantly – courageous conversation.

 

Today we find ourselves at one of the most divisive moments in American history. This event will highlight our shared humanity in the face of a growing culture of contempt. Join WBHM, NPR, and StoryCorps as Birmingham charts a path forward for our city, our state, and our country.

 

One Small Step: An Evening of Courageous Conversations is made possible by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting.
