20 Most Riveting TED Talks About Race Relations in America

TED Talks are inspiring. They reach deep into perspectives so cosmic. They challenge the status quo. But is that not how we learn, and grow, and become better people?

TED Talks are an opportunity for all of us to sit up, listen and understand what lies away from our local sphere—even the far-away sights and sounds, cultures, and emotions of all textures, so to speak.

That allows us to see what others see and feel what they feel. These talks are, straight down, a pool of wisdom. They invigorate our humanness.

In the wake of the Black Lives Matter Movements, Kivumbi Press has resolved, in solidarity with the cause, to put together a list of twenty (20) of the most informational and educational TED Talks about the truths that lie beneath the continuing racial unrest in America.

If you believe in a cause, be willing to stand up for that cause with a million people or by yourself.― Otis S. Johnson

No one can be authentically human while he prevents others from being so — Apollo Fleury
