And finally, as part of our summer long
Race Out Loud
series, Richard Steele will join
to talk about how parents discuss race with their children. Despite what some might hope or think, children are not color blind. African-Americans as young as three or four and white kids as young as five and six identify themselves by race. Steele is joined by Christia Brown, a child psychology expert at the University of Kentucky, in looking at how the child mind understands racial constructs. Does your family talk about race? To join the on-air conversation, call 312.923.9239 or tweet using #848.
