TV About Racism and Social Justice
These TV shows tackle the troubling issue of racism and the fight for social justice in age-appropriate ways. Kids as young as preschool can gain more awareness around racism and social inequity through shows like Sesame Street. Older kids and teens can learn more about the historical context of U.S. racism and the enduring fight for equality through docuseries about figures like Trayvon Martin and Kalief Browder, as well as provocative programming that doesn't shy away from exposing the flaws in our society. These stories can even help inspire kids to make a difference in their own communities and the world at large.
