As parents, it is OUR responsibility to break the generational patterns of racism. It is our responsibility to be the change and empower our children to be the change. It’s not enough to be non-racist, we must be anti-racist. We should all be doing more, so today I am sharing what I have found in my own research on how we can talk to our kids about race and racism. This is not an exhaustive list, I am not an expert on racism and I don’t have all of the answers, I am just a real mom wanting to learn and help other moms do the same.
