Delivering the Mandela Lecture in Johannesburg in July 2018, former president Barack Obama declared that "every generation has the opportunity to remake the world." We would amend that slightly: every generation does remake the world. The key question is: what sensibilities, analyses, and sense of purpose will each generation bring to their remaking?
Kids 4 Freedom & Justice, based in Los Angeles, is helping to generate some radical answers to that question by providing a "space for kids of color of all genders to learn and share practices of liberation, wholeness and foster their fierceness in a cohort of their peers." Co-founder Kim Tabari and her son, a K4FJ alum, join the EmbraceRace community to share their insights about the opportunities and challenges of preparing youth of color to be changemakers in a world that often works to limit their possibilities.
