Resources for White Parents Raising Anti-Racist Kids
Kriya Lendzion – Evergreen Community Charter School, Last edit: 7/15/20
Research shows that kids as young as toddlers are actively learning about race and ethnicity, forming stereotypes and biases based on the toxic images and messages that we are all soaking in. When parents ignore the topic of race, children learn that racial diversity and inequities are too scary to talk about, don’t truly exist, or aren’t important enough to address. Therefore, it is critical that parents learn to intentionally talk about race and racism and not leave children on their own to learn about it from the media or others. As parents, we have the greatest power to disassemble harmful messages, and shape kids that not only live in awareness, acceptance and kindness, but as active change agents in dismantling racism for our next generation.

“Villages preserve culture: dress, food and dance are a few examples. As villages grow in population and turn into towns, local cafes make way for large American chains. Handmade leather sandals are discarded for a pair of Western sneakers.
Due to its small size, a village fosters a tight-knit sense of community. Justpeace.org explains the meaning of the African proverb, “It takes a village,” by stating that a sense of community is critical to maintaining a healthy society.
Village members hold a wealth of information regarding their heritage: they know about the ancient traditions, methods of production and the resources of the land. When villages become dispersed or exterminated in times of war, this anthropological knowledge disappears.
Large cities are not as conducive to growing and producing foods such as fruits and vegetables. Villages, on the other hand, usually have ample amounts of land and other resources necessary for growing conditions.” The Importance of Villages by Catherine Capozzi
