How would you describe your hue?

 

Probably not a question you’ve pondered before, is it? Discussions of race are often centered around descriptive terms that are not accurate, like “black” and “white.” 

 

In this episode, I sit down with Lucretia Berry to unpack how we can reframe our conversations about race to remove the negative connotations often associated with this topic. Lucretia explains how adults often approach racial discussions with shame and anxiety, but it doesn’t have to be that way. 

 

Race shouldn’t be something we avoid recognizing. It is possible to have positive, productive conversations about this traditionally tough topic. 

 

“Understanding or noticing difference, as long as we’re valuing it, is good.” Dr. Lucretia Berry

Listen in as Dr. Lucretia Berry shows us:

    • How children talk about different ethnicities and what we can learn from them
    • Why claiming to be “color blind” can actually be damaging
    • Practical steps we can take to get more comfortable discussing race
