We love to protect our children from the evils of the world but unfortunately the fight to end racism should not be one of them. Showing the pictures from text books and visiting the Civil Rights museums are all necessary but what’s equally if not even more important is that we help them understand the roots of systemic racism. For Black Children this is important in order for them to start understanding some of the potential set backs they could deal with based on their skin color. For White Children this should serve as a learning tool that creates awareness and consciousness.

This 4 minute 23 second video from ACT.tv explains Systemic Racism and the generational effects on the Black community and the country large. We hope that you find the time to share this video with your family.
