Vera Jones – President
'I chose to be a board member of Colorful Talks: Because racism is real. Its effects are painful, ugly, and destructive. I was beginning to feel helpless to make a difference, and thus hopeless things would change for the better. Colorful Talks presented me the opportunity to remedy those feelings; to become part of a solution and help others do the same. Children become what they learn as well as experience. I want them to learn truth, acceptance, love, kindness, and hope. May our hope always be greater than our hurt or hate.'
