Articles to Help Discuss Race at Home

"Reading Race: Pro-active Conversations With Young Children" is from a helpful archive of other articles that gives a real example of a conversation, as well as names a specific book that we are now using throughout Lower School, Let’s Talk About Race. 
This article from The Atlantic, "Do Conversations About Race Belong in the Classroom?" is an interview with Beverly Daniel Tatum as she reflects upon her seminal work on the psychology of racism 
"Anti-Racist Parenting While White: An Inquiry" shows how four white families approach anti-racist parenting
"The Stress of Parenting While Black Can Take a Toll on Mental Health" reveals the thoughts of some parents of color as they make parenting decisions. It also contains excellent embedded links to the scholarly research that backs up why these decisions are necessary.
