PBS Kids is doing its part to combat racism with a special premiering this October, called PBS Kids Talk About: Race and Racism.
The half-hour program will feature content from PBS Kids’ series Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood, Arthur, and Xavier Riddle and the Secret Museum, in addition to authentic conversations between real kids and their parents discussing racism. The special will help parents teach their kids about understanding what racism can look like and noting the way we can stand up for ourselves and each other by being actively anti-racist. It will also look specifically at racism against Black people in the U.S.
The special will debut on Oct. 9 on the PBS Kids 24/7 channel as part of PBS Kids Family Night. It will also be available on PBS stations nationwide (check local listings), in addition to streaming on pbskids.org, the PBS Kids Video app, and on PBS Kids’ Facebook, YouTube, and Instagram.
