If we’re wondering how to feel and act today, can you imagine how our kids are feeling? That’s why I felt it was important to speak up and have a conversation about race today, especially as it pertains to our kids.
What started as a quick conversation on the June 2020 episode of The Sami Cone Show, my friend Danyelle Little and I quickly realized we needed to dig deeper.
Below you will find our entire conversation on not only how to talk to your kids about race, but so much more.
A few takeaways from our conversation on race in America today:
- Whether its uncomfortable or not, you still need to have the conversation.
- Always “take their temperature” and ask someone how they are feeling.
- People are upset and they should be: validate how they are feeling.
- Don’t be afraid to ask question
- Look to see what Black creatives are doing: music, movies, books, etc.
- Always keep in mid others sacrifices, struggles and tribulations.
Helping White Parents Raise Anti-Racist Kids
I’m proud of my alma mater where I earned my Masters Degree, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, for compiling this list of resources to help White parents raise anti-racist kids:
- Social Media
- Additional Articles
- Videos to watch
- Podcasts to subscribe to
- Books to read
- Films and TV series to watch
I encourage you to watch our entire conversation above. Danyelle encouraged me to sit and stew, and I would encourage you to do the same.
