One of the most important things I’ve learned in the last week is how important it is to talk to our children about race, and not just diversity but what racism means and looks like. Specifically what it means to be anti-racist, privileged and what implicit biases are. Those might seem like adult concepts, but as studies have shown, it’s never too early to start talking to your kids about them.
For anyone looking to get started doing this along with Austin and I, I’ve compiled some amazing resources and books. From black voices and leaders on Instagram to children’s books and helpful articles, everything below should help you start having these necessary conversations in your home.
Please share in the comments if there’s an account we should all be following or book we can’t miss! xx, Ashley
I have learned so much from the resources these accounts have shared. Highly recommend checking them out if you are looking for graphics or conversation starters.
