Starbucks: Curriculum released for “The Third Place: Our Commitment, Renewed”

Must read


On May 29, Starbucks closed 8,000 stores in the United States for four hours—so 175,000 Starbucks partners could come together for a conversation and learning session on racial bias.

Starbucks partners shared life experiences, heard from others, listened to experts on bias and racial anxiety, reflecting on the realities of bias in society and talking about how to work together to create public spaces where everyone feels like they belong.

The full curriculum is now available at

This independently created film by Stanley Nelson, below, is part of the that curriculum. It was underwritten by Starbucks with the intent of educating our partners about the history of access to public spaces for African-Americans.

The film explores the impact of bias within public accommodations as well as the possibilities for a better future. The film is integrated into the curriculum and discussion materials that are shared with Starbucks partners (employees).
