What do you say?

If we are silent, we are complicit. But, knowing we should talk with our children about racism and understanding what to say are two different things. 

Here are some resources that might help. This isn't an exhaustive list, if you have suggestions on improving it, let us know at

  • The Atlantic  offers this short video to help you know how to start a conversation

  • Sharing books with your children that celebrate diversity is a great way to keep the conversation going. There are many sites to help get you started. Thanks to our friends at Lincoln School, we found The Conscious Kid.

  • Time​out is a NYC based website that just posted a great list of recommendations

  • Support Black owned businesses by enjoying some foods that might be new to your family. the Boston Globe offers these suggestions

  • The Globe has also compiled a list of great children's books, remember our friends at Book Ends are back to work. You can order on line or on the phone for curbside pick up

  • Winchester educators often turn to Facing History and Ourselves or Teaching Tolerance for insight. Both offer resources for parents as well. Say Their Names is an extensive resource produced by Chicago Public Schools

"If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor. If an elephant has its foot on the tail of a mouse and you say that you are neutral, the mouse will not appreciate your neutrality."  Desmond Tutu, Human Rights Activist
