At a time of substantial racial turbulence in the United States, 80 percent of young U.S. adults, including 50 percent of millennials of color, say they rarely or never spoke about race in their childhood homes.

Andrew Grant-Thomas is the co-director at EmbraceRace, an online community of parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles, teachers and guidance counselors, day care providers, young people, and caring adults. Andrew was previously the director of programs at the Proteus Fund; deputy director of the Kirwan Institute for the Study of Race and Ethnicity at the Ohio State University; & researcher at the Civil Rights Project at Harvard University.
