Real Talk is a three-event series of curated live conversations on issues and topics of critical importance to marginalized communities, including (but not limited to): people of color, LGBTQA and economically disadvantaged citizens. Providing a voice and platform for often voiceless people is at the heart of the series.

Future dates for the Real Talk series into the fall are Sept. 21, Oct. 19 and Nov. 16. Topics will be posted as confirmed.

The Real Talk program series is sponsored by the Tri-City Collective, the Woody Guthrie Center, Folk Alliance International and the Tulsa Artist Fellowship.
