Parents, educators, students: How do you discuss race in your home/classroom?
How do you talk about what's going on in Ferguson? How much historical context do you try to include in the conversation?
Even before the recent incidents in Ferguson, beginning with the fatal shooting on Aug. 9 by a police officer of an unarmed 18-year-old, race has been an issue that was bound to come up in classrooms and homes. With school transfer programs involving many area districts, race is often on the minds of young people and adults alike. What kinds of conversations are you having?
St. Louis Public Radio's Emanuele Berry is looking for people who can share how young people and those they look to for guidance are talking about these tough topics. Please respond to the questions below to share your insight.
