Many children have questions about the recent police involved shooting deaths of two black men, and the protests that followed.

But how do you explain what happened to your kids if you’re having a hard time processing it yourself? Can we honestly convey the brutality of racism in America to our children without depriving them of any sense of love and respect for their country? 

Bishop Shelton Fabre of the Diocese of Houma-Thibodaux in Louisiana oversaw the production of a book on the topic, and joins Currents News with advice on how to talk to your kids about racism.
