Our nation has reached another critical juncture when it comes to racial equity and justice for all. There are alot of issues we need to be looking square in the eye at, and a lot of hard conversations to have. But, I believe, some of the most important of those conversations should be with our children. They are the key to a better future. But, how do we have these conversations? What exactly should we say? And, what age should our kids be when we start talking about race with them?
Dr. Beverly Daniel Tatum is a psychologist, a nationally recognized authority on racial issues in America, and the author of the critically acclaimed book: Why Are All The Black Kids Sitting Together in the Cafeteria? And Other Conversations About Race. I am thrilled that she agreed to join me for this episode of Rise and Shine to offer her insigt and advice on this topic.
