Navigating Conversations About Race

Jun 16, 2020

 

Talking about race can be challenging, nerve-wracking, and uncomfortable for some. How can we work through those feelings, and prevent them from cutting important conversations short?

In the wake of the death of George Floyd, and the protests that followed, a lot of people are having complex conversations about race. We talk to experts and advocates about how we can better navigate these discussions with family, friends and coworkers.

We also talk to a psychologist about how to talk to kids about race.
