Turning the page: using children's books to talk about race

Let’s talk about it!

Starting conversations with kids about race

Parents and caregivers of young children (ages 3-6) are invited to join members of the CMU community for a discussion about using children’s books to open conversations about race. In this interactive session at the Mount Pleasant Discovery Museum, we’ll discuss why we should talk about race with our children, explore a chosen children’s book, and share resources for continued learning. This is a community-based event designed to feature diverse perspectives, and we welcome your contributions!
