MPR News presents: The Human Potential, the new series of conversations that dig into timely news topics and the issues facing our society continues... These face-to-face conversations foster understanding, cultivate empathy and allow for multiple perspectives.

Our goal is to take on the difficult conversations people wish they could have, but don't know how or where to start. We’ll do that work for them, bringing people together and starting the conversation.

MPR News’ award-winning reporter Brandt Williams will lead community members and an invited cadre of diverse guests from across the Twin Cities through what promises to be more thought-provoking conversations.

Bridging the Divide Between Communities of Color and the Police
Given the recent events in the Twin Cities and nationally, trust and communication between Communities of Color and the Police is at a record low. How do we change that paradigm moving forward? How can the police and the communities of color that they serve build bridges of understanding and cooperation in order to reduce fear and mistrust; providing safer interactions for everyone?

Invited Guests

Mark Kappelhoff,Former Deputy Assistant Attorney General at the U.S. Department of Justice

Jason Sole, President, NAACP

Janeé Harteau, Chief of Police, Minneapolis Police Department

Cathy Spann, Executive Director, Jordan Area Community Council
