To create, play, and learn, one must first feel safe.
The Children’s Creativity Museum stands against racism and stands with Black children, caregivers, educators, and the entire Black community.
We ask our visitors to use their imagination to envision a future they would like to live in. In order to create the inclusive and equitable future we hope for, we must first actively speak and take action against the structural racism that holds us back.
What age to start having conversations with your child about race and how to do it
We need to talk with our children about race and equity starting at a young age if we hope to see real progress against racism. In this video, psychologist Dr. Donald Grant shares key reasons for why parents need to have these conversations with their children starting as early as 5 years old, and how to do it in a developmentally appropriate and relevant way.
Make sure to listen to 4:54 in the video, where Dr. Donald Grant provides a helpful script as an example for how parents can kick off the conversation about equity with their 5-year-old, and where to go from there.
