Learning to talk to children about race
It’s difficult for many people to talk about race. But, studies show, it’s important to talk with kids about race in order to instill unbiased attitudes. Racial bias can show up as early as 3 years of age. As part of Michigan Radio's Seeking Change series, I spoke with Sarah Salguera, program director for Lakeshore Ethnic Diversity Alliance in Holland. She’s trying to get more parents and caregivers to openly discuss race with kids by heading up the program, "Talking to Kids About Race."
More information on the program and studies about how early on racial bias sets in can be found at Lakeshore Ethnic Diversity Alliance's website
