Every Tuesday, I join a dozen or so residents for coffee and conversation at a cozy, eclectic, and homey coffee shop in our Shaw neighborhood in St. Louis. We are a mix of ages, races, and genders and call ourselves the Touchy Topics Tuesday group.
We talk about race, prejudice, police relationships, stereotypes, discrimination and other touchy topics. We respect each others’ opinions and views and have learned to listen more deeply. We delve into topics in an honest and open manner.
