While some parents might struggle over when and how to introduce their children to racism and other ugly truths, journalist Dani McClain writes that black mothers don't have "the luxury of sticking our heads in the sand and hoping our children learn about race and power as they go." Black mothering, McClain writes, is an inherently political act. Forum talks with McClain and writer Carvell Wallace about black parenthood and how to raise children with joy and serenity in a world that's often hostile to them.

Guests:

Dani McClain, journalist, author, "We Live for the We: The Political Power of Black Motherhood"

Carvell Wallace, writer; formerly Slate's parenting advice columnist and host of "Mom and Dad are Fighting" podcast
