Toolkit For Conversations On Protests, Race & African American History

For discussing complicated subjects raised in KERA broadcasts, reporting projects and events

resourcesAs communities around the world struggle to deal with news reports of George Floyd’s death in Minneapolis police custody and to understand the resulting protests, KERA has created a toolkit of resources to provide historical and social context. We selected these resources to help parents, teachers, students and others reflect on the current events and to hold informed conversations with family and friends.

The videos, essays, background papers, discussion questions, lessons and other resources in the toolkit address a range of topics, including protests, race, African American history and talking to children about race, violence and traumatic events. You can find the toolkit here.

Also: Watch a PBS collection of U.S. racial justice and Black history documentaries.
