Nick News is back with a special hour-long presentation–Kids, Race and Unity: A Nick News Special, premiering TONIGHT, June 29, at 7 p.m. (ET/PT). Hosted by global superstar Alicia Keys, the program will feature the leaders of the Black Lives Matter movement answering children’s questions, offer tools for families to have constructive conversations about race and inclusivity, and highlight teen activists who are fighting racial injustice.
Alicia Keys explains the show’s mission:
Talking about race can be sensitive and uncomfortable; and sometimes we try to protect our children from racism they are already experiencing. But honestly, there is no way around this topic if we want to move forward in any kind of meaningful way. What’s happening in the world is not just a problem for the Black community, it’s all of our problem and we ALL have to care about it in order to change it!
Kids, Race and Unity: A Nick News Special will simulcast across Nickelodeon, TeenNick, and Nicktoons, and be available on Nickelodeon YouTube, Nick On Demand, the Nick App and the Nick Pluto TV channel following tonight’s premiere.
A discussion guide as well as anti-racism resources, made in partnership with The Conscious Kid and Dr. George James, will be available on nickhelps.com and Nickelodeon’s social channels following the premiere of the special.
Sounds like a vitally important show to watch with the family. Must-see TV!!
