Why is the film called Dear White Parents?
Out of necessity, Black, Indigenous, and other People of Color (BIPOC) have been discussing the challenges and harms of racism with their children for generations. The Dear White Parents film is a missive, a plea, for more White parents and families to join the effort to teach children to recognize and resist racism with the same candor, frequency, and urgency as BIPOC families have for generations.
