Teaching Kids About Race

Children are very observant… they notice differences in skin colors, hair, clothes, ways of talking...  Host Charity Nebbe discusses how children learn about race and how parents can teach their children about race and ethnicity with Erin Winkler, associate professor of Africology at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, and Madeleine Rogin, a kindergarten teacher and education blogger for GOOD Magazine.  Also, author Vaunda Micheaux Nelson who writes children's books with African-American protagonists discusses her work and inspiration.
