(Columbia, SC) – Richland Library is creating opportunities for civic engagement, building community connections, and encouraging courageous conversations using its newest open-source community resource, the Let’s Talk Race Curriculum.
Established in 2016, the nationally recognized Let’s Talk Race team began by using small circles of dialogue to spark courageous conversations about race. The Let’s Talk Race team consists of diverse staff members who are trained facilitators and have led more than 250 Let’s Talk Race conversations for over 4,000 participants.
The free curriculum, launched in June 2023, provides opportunities for small groups and large organizations to learn from trained facilitators how to customize the Let’s Talk Race experience to meet their needs. The goal of the curriculum is to keep communities talking, listening and learning more about themselves and others.
The free curriculum access includes:
- Five Facilitation modules that will prepare you to facilitate conversations about race in your community
- Checklists and Starter Packs for large and small groups
- Conversation Guides
- Video Resources
- Racial Equity and Inclusion Toolkit

The Let’s Talk Race Curriculum is made possible by generous support from AARP, Central Carolina Community Foundation, Colonial Life, Dominion Energy, Richland Library Friends and Foundation and Richland Library.
