Color Brave: Talking with Youth About Racism   

Although race and racism are at the top of America’s public discussions, it turns out that most white parents, grandparents and caregivers in the United States do not talk about these issues with their kids. One of the reasons may be because they don’t know the right answer. Often the right answer is simply to have a conversation about the issues. For families of color, the conversation serves the critical purpose of preparing for the racism and discrimination they may encounter and a chance to talk about cultural pride. Although there’s no one-size-fits-all model, we will discuss several strategies to consider in helping children and youth understand and resist racism and promote antiracism. It all starts with intentional, honest, and purposeful conversations focused on equity and justice for all people.
