This film for Procter & Gamble and the My Black Is Beautiful initiative features different African-American parents having “The Talk” with their kids about racial bias and how it can make life more difficult--and at times even more dangerous.

In one of this piece’s most poignant moments, a girl behind the wheel of a car insists she’s a good driver and her mom doesn’t need to tell her what to do if she gets pulled over. The girl has no intention of getting pulled over because she obeys the speed limit and the rules of the road. Mom doesn’t doubt that but she has to explain to her daughter, “This is not about getting a ticket. This is about you not coming home.”

The My Black Is Beautiful campaign is designed to spark a conversation about racial bias. Malik Vitthal of The Corner Shop directed “The Talk” for BBDO New York, with support from minority-certified consulting firm Egami Consulting Group.
