Parenting Our Future

What my guest, Jen Lumanlan, taught me is that choosing not to talk about it, is a privilege I have because I'm white. This conversation was a huge eye opening moment for me.  I was someone who didn't even want to say "white" or "black".  In this episode, my intention is to have a vulnerable conversation about my own (and commonplace) ignorance about racism and learn what we can all do better to be more tolerant, educated to end systemic racism.
