But really, can we? I know y’all are seeing it too. You’ve shared with me that once you know what to look for you’ve started to see it all over the place. Okay so now you know it’s there but what do you do about it?
In this episode we break down three super cringey examples of white privilege that I’ve seen in the last week. Tune in to hear how those of you who hold white privilege can respond in these racist situations.
Race Talk Roadmap
Our Race Talk Roadmap is the tool you need to begin conversations about race and racism with your children! We have a list of three tips for parents of older children and a list of three tips for parents of younger children. Visit firstnamebasis.org/racetalk to get the Race Talk Roadmap sent straight to your inbox.
Parents have been asking for a practical, interactive way to implement the anti-racist strategies that I lay out in the First Name Basis Podcast. So this October we are launching “Ally Elementary: Anti-Racist Education For Families."
During this five-week program parents will work together with their children to create a culture of anti-racism in their home, and I will be there to guide them every step of the way. We will use hands-on activities to teach our children about everything from the untold story of how race was created to how they can disrupt racism in their everyday lives. I am so excited to watch the families in our community make a meaningful transformation and improve their communities through anti-racist action.
