Starting conversations with kids about race relations can be hard, but it’s absolutely necessary. Kids need help from the adults in their lives to process events like the killing of George Floyd and others including Ahmaud Aubery and Breonna Taylor, and the protests and riots that have followed. But what do we say to them? How do we explain the violence? The pain? The anger?

No one has all of the answers, but we can point parents, teachers, and others who love and care for the youngest members of society and the world to some important resources from respected thought leaders who offer advice and help.

The resources below on race relations and anti-racism are suitable for varied ages. For some of the links, we’ve indicated the most appropriate age group.
