Anti-Racism Resources: For Parents

 

Good kids don’t come about “on accident,” as my toddler would say. These are the resources we personally recommend, and remember, it’s never too late to start the conversation. The CNN/Sesame Street Town Hall is so good and helpful, we watched it over and over again – and took notes!

 

A Kids Book About Racism (preorders available now)

“Yes, this really is a kids book about racism. Inside, you’ll find a clear description of what racism is, how it makes people feel when they experience it, and how to spot it when it happens. This is one conversation that’s never too early to start, and this book was written to be an introduction for kids on the topic.” – AKidsBookAbout.com

CNN/Sesame Street Racism Town Hall

We watched this multiple times! Sesame Street joined CNN for a Town Hall to discuss racism and protests taking place for kids/families…. “Sesame Street’s Abby Cadabby shares a story about how her fellow Sesame Street friend Big Bird was a victim of prejudice, and how she stood up for him. A college professor defines white privilege.” – CNN.com
