"After 63 Dialogues (16 years of Dialogues), during these tumultuous times, we have decided that people from different cultures need to get together and share food and talk about the serious plague of racism in this country. In addition, we need to learn how to enjoy each other's company. This is what happens regularly in my living room. When people ask me: 'What happens at a Dialogue?' I always say: 'It's different every time.' And that always turns out to be true. We learn as we go--from each other. In the process, we get to eat delicious food from all over the world and to meet people whom we would never meet otherwise.

I urge you to start a small dialogue against racism in your own living room. It will reward you in ways you cannot imagine. It has changed my life."
