Nevergrey Director Kate Robinson speaks with Julie Lythcott-Haims about the importance of the Black Lives Matter movement and how to address racism at home.

We are in the middle of one of the biggest global civil rights movement we have ever seen. Black Lives Matter protests, for the first time, have taken place in every US state, as well as across the UK and elsewhere in Europe. To better understand the role of how families of all races can address racism at home, Kate Robinson speaks with Julie Lythcott-Haims, a writer and speaker whose work focuses on the rise of helicopter parenting as well as on race. Throughout the conversation Julie offers incredible insight as well as tangible advice.
