After the release of the Netflix docu-series, Colin in Black and White, we hosted a series of panel discussions to get different perspectives. The panel discussions featured a lineup of guests who speak to their own experiences as they relate to Colin’s. We’ve shared each recording below so you can rewatch and share with friends who aren’t on Facebook!
