Teaching Young Children that Black Lives Matter

Black History will come alive for young children this Thursday when a group of parents and children in San Francisco will march, sing and chant and focus on why Black lives are valuable to the community. In honor of Black History Month, they are inviting all families with children ages 3-10 years  (but all are welcome) to march with their children and learn about the Black Lives Matter movement. They will meet at Mission Community Market.  This event is appropriate for young children and will not focus on violence and murder but  will discuss how children can address issues of racism. This event will be held on Thursday, February 26 from 3:30pm - 5:00pm in PST at the Mission Community Market - 90 Bartlett St, San Francisco, California 94110. For more information.
