Florida’s Fourth Estate: How to talk to your kids about race

Dr. Annette Nunez visits Florida's Fourth Estate to provide tips on how to talk to your children about race.

The death of George Floyd, who was killed while in police custody, has sparked a national conversation on race and what it means to be black in America.

Some people are having frank conversations with family, friends and coworkers.

But what happens when our kids start asking questions? How do we tell them the truth without igniting fear?

Ginger and Matt speak with a psychotherapist Dr. Annette Nunez about how to talk to your kids about race and when that conversation should or should not happen.


Florida’s Fourth Estate looks at everything from swampy politics to a fragile environment and even the crazy headlines that make Florida the craziest state in the Union.

Each week they have a guest host who helps give an irreverent look at the issues impacting the Sunshine State. Big influencers like Attorney John Morgan, renowned Florida journalists and the scientists protecting Florida’s ecosystem can often be found as guests.
