How to Talk to Your Kids About Becoming an Antiracist
Posted July 7, 2020
It is important that we, educators and parents, talk with children about race, racism, and the history of racial oppression in the United States. These are not easy conversations to have but this does not mean we do not have them. We hope these articles help jump start the discussion. By no means is this list exhaustive, but other things you can do to start and continue the discussion about race and racism include: diversify your bookshelf (look for stories featuring and written by people of color), seek out media created by people of color (movies, music, etc), build news literacy (talk with your children about what kinds of stories get the most attention? How are language and images used differently to depict people and incidents depending on the news outlet), and do not forget to reflect on your own beliefs and biases, do your research, and acknowledge what you do not know while reassuring your child you will look into it and learn together with your child.
