Our children are enduring racial slurs, offensive gestures, violent attacks, race-related bullying, and over-policing. We have been horrified over the last decade by escalating instances of violence against Black men and boys, often at the hands of law enforcement. Over the last 3 years, we are seeing rampant hostility towards Black boys AND girls in businesses, neighborhoods, and school systems. Some cynics may say “What’s new?” Well, a lot is new and I want hear from parents.
If you are raising a Black daughter or son, I would love to hear your thoughts on what it’s like “Growing Up While Black” today. I am working on a multimedia project that is centered on this topic.
