7 Resources for Talking to Kids About Racism

Talking to young children about what racism is and how it affects communities is critically important. We’ve gathered a few resources for having these difficult conversations at home, and teaching young children how to be antiracist. The Discovery Center is proud to serve as a community anchor where all families are celebrated. We stand in solidarity right now with black people and people of color, and in support of every child’s right to play, learn and grow safe from harm and fear.
