Movies about race to watch with your kids

“No one is born hating another person because of the colour of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.” Nelson Mandela (1994)

We believe it is so important to educate children, at any age, about race and racism. Here are some film suggestions that can help you introduce the conversation of racism with your children.

If you are concerned about whether a film is appropriate for your child to watch, you can go to and search the title of the film for reviews from parents and kids.

Some films/documentaries are available to watch on Netflix, Disney+ or can be streamed/ordered on Amazon.
