Episode 156: How to Talk to Kids About Race with Amber Coleman-Mortley

Imagine a diverse community in which people embrace their commonalities while respecting and celebrating each others’ differences. This vision is possible once we can talk openly about race with our family and friends.

In Episode 156 of the Edit Your Life podcast, Christine interviews Amber Coleman-Mortley, Director of Social Engagement at iCivics, Inc., about how to talk about race with kids. In this engaging, practical conversation, Amber shares two helpful analogies that illuminate the concepts of privilege and cultural differences, demonstrates how to ask questions based in empathy and respect, and shares how simple it can be to nurture cross-cultural curiosity… the foundation of a more equitable school, neighborhood, and country.
