Naturally Curious Children

Can you imagine what this world might look like one day with all these children actively learning about and participating in anti-racism?

As the days go on, please do not forget that this work is never done. It’s not one conversation or one order of new books. It has to be a conscious mindset, it’s a shift in the way we parent and teach.

I’ve learned through my own work, by listening to Black voices, that there will always something that I hadn’t thought about or learned or questioned.

ETA: I’ve learned that this quote was actually made by Mahatma Ghandi. I’m not sure how it came to be that credit was given to a white man.
