Why are Black people being hurt, here in America? This is Regan’s question. In the first installment of BKBXKids! “Asks Why” series, Regan will use her own experience to guide us. This sticky question transforms into a wide space for exploration using embodied poetry, hands-as-puppets, and a dance party to process feelings. The series lays the groundwork for conversations that can continue between kids and their loved ones everywhere, creating an accessible entry point that centers imaginative play, full body engagement, and joyful curiosity.
