Our nation is hurting. The recent senseless killings of unarmed black people in America are an all too painful reminder that silence is not an option when addressing racism in our communities. While these conversations can be difficult, we cannot shy away from addressing the racial injustices in our country.
It is never too early to teach children to treat everyone fairly. Even in these times of crisis and mourning, there is absolutely hope — giving kids tools and language, helping them understand, and teaching them what they can do is critical to ensuring that this nation can do better. The Greensboro Children’s Museum wants to continue being a resource for learning and difficult conversations.
Please see below for resources to engage and empower children in conversations on race and racism. We encourage you to share additional resources in the comments.
