Race is something for us all to understand and not to ignore, because no matter how far we’ve come, race and racism still affects everyone. That’s why this week on NowThis Kids, host Naomi Wadler is talking about race and what families can do to fight racism together. We speak to Caroline Hu Flexer and Naomi O’Brien, who are part of Khan Academy: a non-profit organization that provides students and teachers with free resources to help kids learn about social topics like race. We speak to them about why it’s so important for families to talk about race and identity together.  How does race and identity affect you? We might look different, or come from different places but correspondent Luria Freeman explains that to get to know someone, we should always do it with an open heart.  How are you being anti-racist in your life?
