Resources for Young Children on Race, Racism, and more

WXXI Education staff collected the following resources to support families and educators of young children as they talk, watch, read, and learn about race and racism.

This is a list of curated educational resources for educators and families to use with their students and children. These resources are not to be used alone, but instead to integrate with other educational materials (conversations, lessons, speeches, video clips, books, etc.) to provide students with the most context and meaningful knowledge. 


Please note: 

  • These resources are free and open for all to use. 
  • This is not an exhaustive list of resources. 
  • These educational materials are to be used in conjunction with other resources, conversations, and instruction to provide the most complete context for young children.
  • These resources are appropriate for use with young children (think: preschool through elementary).
  • As with all educational materials, please preview these resources prior to utilizing with students to check for appropriateness.
  • These resources are to be watched, read, and explore together with an adult.
