Lady Gaga & Dr. Bernice King Discuss The Power of Unlearning

Lady Gaga joined Dr. Bernice King to discuss and talk about racism and how it affects society and the power of unlearning it. The conversation's main focus was on teaching white people to join in conversations about white supremacy and racism. 

"It took me making mistakes and really looking in the mirror and asking why I can't talk about [racism]". - Lady Gaga.

Gaga even revealed that how she was asked to visit the Capitol on the day of President Biden's inauguration, but that she refused as she was too afraid. But then, after singing the national anthem at the event, she went incognito and witnessed the riots at the Capitol with her own eyes. 

This important subject is part of the Beloved Community Talks, bringing people out of their comfort zone and together for the common good of the community, by creating an environment conducive to open, honest, and unapologetic conversations that are civil; bringing people out of their comfort zone to promote understanding and to influence equitable change to the national infrastructure.

The BCT platform brings together business and community leaders, police officers, politicians, students, businesses, and cultural influencers for open dialogue and practical solutions for local cities and communities. We envision that individuals and communities will find commonalities that bring them together in order to work on initiatives in their respective communities. The BCT provides an environment within communities where people can get to know each other, seeking first to understand and then to be understood.
