Talking with Children about Racism
Topic on “Morning Show”

Kabria Baumgartner, Assistant Professor at the University of New Hampshire and Erin Seaton, Senior Lecturer at Tufts University will visit “The Morning Show” on Thursday to advise parents on how to talk about racism with children.

Baumgartner teaches African American History, Literature, and Culture at UNH, and Seaton is Co-Director of Educational Studies at Tufts.

Host Mary Jacobsen will interview Baumgartner and Seaton about why it’s important to discuss racism with children, and the messages that silence on the subject may communicate.

Baumgartner and Seaton will offer suggestions on how to explain what it means to be racist and anti-racist; what Black Lives Matter means and what protesters are seeking; and what resources are available to parents to educate themselves and their children about racial history in America.

Vicki Hendrickson will also visit the show to discuss the diverse online courses available this summer through Newburyport Adult and Community Education.
