Prejudice: Answering Children's Questions
Hosting an audience of young children as culturally diverse as our nation, Peter Jennings leads an investigation of prejudice - or what he terms as "the child of ignorance." Featuring a team of experts who conduct several enlightening experiments designed to help children better understand the roots of prejudice, the special presentation scrutinizes some of the influences that shape children’s ideas about the world as well as examines stereotypes based on race, sex, religion and disability. Prejudice: Answering Children’s Questions is not just for children, but for people of all ages. It provides answers to the question of whether we have to be the same to be equal. (75 min.)
