“PBS KIDS Talk About: Race and Racism,” is a half-hour program featuring authentic conversations between real children and their parents, and will include content from PBS KIDS series DANIEL TIGER’S NEIGHBORHOOD, ARTHUR and XAVIER RIDDLE AND THE SECRET MUSEUM.
The special will debut as part of PBS KIDS Family Night on the PBS KIDS 24/7 channel, and will also be available on PBS 6, and streaming on pbskids.org, the PBS KIDS Video app, and on PBS KIDS’ Facebook, YouTube, and Instagram.
Designed as a co-viewing experience, the show features kids and their parents talking about race and racial justice-related topics in an age-appropriate way, offering viewers ideas to build on as they continue these important conversations at home.
To support this new offering, PBS KIDS provides a variety of resources to help parents talk to young children about race and racism. This resource hub on PBS KIDS for Parents includes articles, a webinar, booklists, links to programming, and more tips and resources to help parents have meaningful conversations with young children about race, racism, and being anti-racist.
