The series uses videos and training materials from the General Commission on Religion and Race (GCORR). It features thought leaders, pastors, theologians, activists, authors, and scholars who share their stories, insights, and expertise on issues related to race, culture, tribe, and the global church.

The GCORR Vital Conversations videos and training materials provide resources to facilitate, guide, and support discussions on racism and offer ways to move to "efficacy, justice, and courageous positive action."

This training is designed to help participants understand how to put the GCORR materials to work in their churches and communities.
