In Black families, it’s known as “The Talk” — the discussion Black parents have with their kids about what to do should they end up in an interaction with a police officer. "The Talk" took on a new poignancy in 2020 on Father’s Day as the nation mourned George Floyd, killed at the hands of a Minneapolis police officer, and demonstrators protested the police killings of unarmed black men.
