They only know that they will have a conversation.  A conversation that can change relationships, change the way we think of them and each other.  Conversations such as this can be hurtful, emotional, and yet inspiring.  What each one will take away from the conversation will really be the test.  15 or more people, with one book will have a Courageous Conversation About Race.
