“There were some things I thought when I was a young man that would have never allowed us to even have a conversation.”

Cheraton Love & Jim White

Cheraton Love identifies as liberal, and her father-in-law, Jim White, identifies as conservative. Cheraton invited Jim to have a conversation at his home in Silver Valley, North Carolina about some of things that are most important to them, and how they don’t let their differences pull their family apart.

They recorded their discussion using the StoryCorps App. Listen to their full conversation on the StoryCorps Archive.

We’re presenting this conversation through One Small Step, StoryCorps’ new national effort to encourage people to engage in a conversation with someone they may not agree with politically.  Join us.

Support for One Small Step is provided by The Rockefeller Foundation; The Corporation for Public Broadcasting; The Einhorn Family Charitable Trust; The Charles Koch Foundation; The Righteous Persons Foundation; and Present Progressive Fund at Schwab Charitable.
