Race talk: Tackling racism and identity with kids

By KPCC In Person (other events)

Tuesday, April 4 2017 7:30 PM 9:00 PM

The 2016 presidential election, high-profile police shootings of black men and women, as well as conversations about diversity in Hollywood have all placed a focus on race, racism and identity in the United States. Conversations around these issues are nothing new, but how can parents talk with their children about one of society's greatest divides?

Join KPCC for a look at how moms and dads can have these oftentimes complicated exchanges with their young children. What discussions are you already having at home? When do we start talking with kids about race and identity? How do we navigate the more difficult subjects? KPCC’s Joanne Griffith will moderate a discussion with educators, parents and other experts on how we can have more meaningful conversations with our children about race.
