THE TALK: WHAT BLACK MOTHERS SHOULD TELL THEIR KIDS ABOUT THE POLICE
The Talk: What Black Mothers Should Tell Their Kids About the Police
Florida Justice Center hosted a special pre-Mother’s Day webinar to discuss an especially timely topic: How Black mothers can effectively communicate with their children about law enforcement interactions. This conversation has been coined “The Talk” and is often seen as a rite of passage for Black children.
Our distinguished panel of speakers share their knowledge to help you have this difficult conversation with your sons and daughters.
We invite you to join us for this emotional, but necessary, discussion to explore The Talk, its relevance today, and how to speak about it with your kids.
