In this week's episode, we learn about what racial literacy is and why we need it more than ever.

Our parent guest this week is Charles Barrett Adams, dad of two and one of the founding members and managing partner of The Lion’s Story, an organization that seeks to prepare individuals and organizations to navigate and resolve racially charged situations using research-based strategies. We talk about managing stress during conversations related to race, and how to engage with our children about racially charged situations - from processing the news to everyday experiences with microaggressions.
