Conversations with Charlie Dyer, Guest: Dr. Jennifer Harvey

When she was six-years-old, Dr. Jennifer Harvey, author of Raising White Kids: Bringing Up Children in a Racially Unjust America, had a realization — she was white. This new awareness came after an innocent conversation with a fellow student at school, followed by confusion and shame after a teacher’s anxiety-induced response left her with the knowledge that there was something loaded about race — but with no idea what it was. Children today have those same realizations. For parents and teachers knowing how to respond to those realizations — and the inevitable questions about our racially unjust society they raise — is essential.
