Please bear with us - this is our first stab at recording audio and we are still working out a few kinks. We have decided to keep the audio unedited, although this means there are the odd clinks and clunks going on in the background!
Interracial dating can be tough. Click the link to read an article about navigating one and listen to Coffee Chat with an interracial couple below.
"...Most important, have these conversations little and often, no matter how uncomfortable or difficult they may be. These are important conversations to have; they are not about guilt or blame – they are about sharing and explaining. Talking to your partner about race is not a subject that can be done in a single evening. Conveying a lifetime of experiences takes many months to draw together over shared moments and conversations. All we can do in the meantime is be patient, be kind, and most of all – be persistent".
