Talking About Race, a new online portal designed to help individuals, families, and communities talk about racism, racial identity, and the way these forces shape every aspect of society, from the economy and politics to the broader American culture. The online portal provides digital tools, online exercises, video instructions, scholarly articles and more than 100 multi-media resources tailored for educators, parents, and caregivers—and individuals committed to racial equality.

The links below are meant to offer foundational resources about diversity, equity, inclusion, and anti-racism, in theatre and beyond. As organizational development expert Timothy Kight writes, “The truth is that you cannot improve what you cannot manage, and you cannot manage what you are blind to in your personal habits and behavior.”
Culture Administrators of Color (NJACAC) is a network of professional arts administrators of color dedicated to advancing efforts related to equity, diversity, and inclusion within New Jersey’s arts community. This initiative is a partnership between New Jersey Theatre Alliance (NJTA), the state’s service organization for professional producing theatre companies, ArtPride New Jersey, the state’s largest arts service and advocacy organization, and New Jersey State Council on the Arts.
Arts and culture have long helped to heal and unite us during painful, fractured times. The Cultural Alliance remains committed to being a partner and agent of change in the pursuit of social justice, amplifying the diverse voices and talents of our community to ensure that they are not only heard but truly seen. We stand as an ally and advocate for change.
