Nancy Wang Yuen, author of Reel Inequality: Hollywood Actors and Racism, was a guest on Southern California Public Radio‘s Race Talk panel on tackling racism and identity with kids. From the SCPR website:
The 2016 presidential election, high-profile police shootings of black men and women and conversations around diversity in Hollywood have put race, racism and identity center stage in the American public space. While these topics are nothing new, for many parents, meaningful conversations with children about race are. On Tuesday, April 4, journalist Joanne Griffith moderated a conversation with educators, parents and experts on how parents can talk about race with their children. Director of talent development and inclusion at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences Edgar Aguirre, World City Center cofounder Rebecca Bernard, parent coach and owner of Evolving Parents Angela Sanders and chair and associate professor of sociology at Biola University Nancy Wang Yuen joined Griffith to offer their professional and personal advice for parents trying to thoughtfully engage with children on the topics of race, racism, beauty and identity.
