Black Lives Matter.
Parents and educators, including those in the Imagination Stage community, can play a role in dismantling systemic racism by teaching about it. This past week, we have been sharing a variety of resources for families on our social media pages regarding how to talk to children about race and racism. Here, we have compiled them in one place for you to read, learn, and pass on. Keep an eye out on our social media for more in the coming days – the struggle for racial equality and social justice is far from over.
It must be made clear that we at Imagination Stage are by no means experts in how to talk about race; therefore it is vital that we listen to and signal boost Black voices and Black stories in our common mission to create a better future for our children.
