Join the new community conversation series with the News & Observer, as they delve into topics with significant interest to North Carolinians.
These community talks are new for The News & Observer, but are becoming common around the country. In a world where people are isolated behind screens and cocooned with like-thinkers, there’s a growing interest in face-to-face discussion and a robust exchange of perspectives and ideas. TED talks are a favorite for a deep dive into an issue or an individual’s compelling story whether seen in person or watched online. Now newspapers and TV stations are sponsoring forums both to inform their audiences and to learn from them.
