What are we afraid of? Why don’t some people want to talk about all of America’s history, including black history? And what is Critical Race Theory?
In this “Your Voice. Their Future.” podcast, Child Advocates seeks the truth with an expert in Critical Race Theory. He’s a law professor from Indiana University who was one of the founders of Critical Race Theory workshops in colleges and universities in the 1980’s. He shares the real story of its’ purpose and why it’s not about shame or blame.
Child Advocates believes when we are willing to educate ourselves, we are better equipped to build a brighter future for every child where race does not determine their life outcomes.

We discuss those fears and share some critical lessons that Child Advocates teaches in its “Interrupting Racism for Children” workshops. You will hear powerful insight on how our history still impacts our present; how the workshops focus on change, not blame; and how bravely talking about racism can replace fear with hope for our children’s future.
