    This is part 2 of the fourth and final episode in the series: What Do We Tell The Children? How To Talk To A Child About Race and Identity.



    In this episode three guest panelists (Amanda Flowers Peterson, Carrie Zelin Johnson, and JuTone Lajoie) share professional insights and genuine, heart-felt wisdom on supporting the development of a multi-ethnic child's identity. Our guests distinguish between learning and valuing the diverse cultural markers gifted to a child, versus the racial categorizations they are perceived by. Practical approaches and methods of explaining this difference to children are also discussed. Caregivers are encouraged to understand their own cultural gifts, and any bias or hurt associated with them, in order to teach and guide children from a position of healing, humility, and grace. The honest stories shared by our guests set an atmosphere of transparency, encouraging listeners to boldly evaluate their own journey of understanding and valuing the cultural gifts God has given them and passing those tools of discernment to the next generation.

He implores caregivers to honestly share the historical and current actions of white supremacy, and allow white children to fully process through responses of surprise, sadness, guilt, or shame as they are guided to the significance of loving your neighbor through word and action.

Thank you H.U.E.

Your time, intentionally, and attention to detail is evident in every series. Great work.

Something new

Thank you, Hue podcast for always providing me with that “something new,” that nugget of wisdom that I never would have thought of myself. I appreciate being challenged and encouraged, and it’s not often I find a podcast that does both in each and every episode.

A Needed Perpective

This podcast is balanced. It’s about bringing people together to talk about racial issues that divide us. If you want to learn but don’t understand or feel misunderstand, this may be for you.
