How Do You Teach Your Child about Racism? A Story.

By Megan Stanish - 25th September 2012

My son’s hero of all heroes is Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. When we visited the King Center this past January on Martin Luther King, Jr Day, my little Bear didn’t want to leave the museum and then the memorial. He wanted to commune with Dr. King all day.
