Three weeks after police killed George Floyd, teens have been out on the streets to protest police brutality and systemic racism. And for a lot of us, especially for Black teens, this is a resounding cry fighting for our right to live and to live in peace. What kinds of conversations are you having with your family about race? We listen to what some of these conversations with teens are like right now, and to hear how they’ve changed over time. To give us a window into what they are, and are not, talking about.
