    Eric Lindsey on Race in America

    We’re focusing on race in America for the next several episodes. We began our conversation with our last episode. I talked with Andrew Grant-Thomas from EmbraceRace about where we are today and how we can move forward. (https://positivelydad.com/podcast/race-in-america/) We talked about how we can talk with our kids about what we've seen over the last 10+ days and the underlying racial injustice that's been part of America's history for 400+ years.


    We'll continue these conversations over the next several weeks as we talk with fathers from all backgrounds about raising kids today.


    This week, we’re talking with Eric Lindsey from Boston. Eric is the father of two boys – ages 3 and 11 – and he’ll share how this moment is impacting his oldest son and the conversations he’s having about being black in America.

    Race in America | A Conversation for Families

    Race in America | A Conversation for Families

    America is in crisis. 40 million unemployed, 100,000+ dead from Coronavirus and US cities are burning. This is a moment in history unlike we’ve seen in my lifetime. How do you talk about this with your family? How can you use this moment to actually inspire hope and change?


    We're talking with Andrew Grant-Thomas from Embrace Race (https://www.embracerace.org/) , an organization that helps parents raise children who can do just that - embrace all races.


    This is Andrew's second visit to Positively Dad. While this conversation is specific to what we're seeing in America at this moment, we had a more general conversation last year. It's called Learning to Embrace Race (https://positivelydad.com/podcast/learning-to-embrace-race-e36/) and would be a good one to hear after you listen to this episode.
