Hello RA Families,
WXXI is happy to share an important upcoming family special called PBS KIDS Talk About: Race and Racism. PBS KIDS Talk About: Race and Racism is a special co-viewing program for families with young children to watch and discuss together. The PBS KIDS Talk About: Race and Racism special is a half-hour program featuring authentic conversations between real children and their grownups, and will include content from PBS KIDS series DANIEL TIGER’S NEIGHBORHOOD, ARTHUR and XAVIER RIDDLE AND THE SECRET MUSEUM.
The special will feature real children and their grownups talking about race and racial justice-related topics in an age-appropriate way, such as noticing differences in race, understanding what racism can look like, and embracing the role we all have to play in standing up for ourselves and each other -- offering viewers ideas to build on as they continue these important conversations at home.
**Please note: This special programming is designed as a co-viewing experience with adults and children watching together. **
