Some of us from the Four Corners (and larger Greenfield) community gathered last week to begin a discussion about raising our children to be race-conscious. We spent some time getting to know each other, and talking about what brought us there followed by an open discussion around race issues within our community, race issues our kids are facing, and how we can best support our kids and community.
Many folks signed up to have a continuing conversation, and we are working on scheduling a first follow-up for the end of May (including snacks, and hopefully childcare again).
In the meantime, Eve and Lamar shared a page of links to resources that they recommend as reading on this topic. This was handed out at the gathering, and I am sharing again here for those of you who are interested but could not make it out.

Thank you to those of you who could make it out to add to our multi-faceted and vibrant discussion. And thank you to those of you who could not make it, but who can follow along with reading and online discussions. You are all making a difference!
