Raising Black boys with Casey Palmer of #blackdadworries

Episode Notes

Casey Palmer is an author, blogger, husband and dad from Toronto. Many of his posts are about parenthood and life with his wife and two young boys. Casey created the hashtag #blackdadworries to raise awareness for the double-standards that exist for the Black community and the things he considers in raising his sons. 

As the trial of Officer Derek Chauvin is currently taking place in Minneapolis for the killing of George Floyd, it seemed like a good time to share a conversation I had with Casey in the summer of 2020 when Mr. Floyd died. 

We discuss code-switching for people in the Black community, what has changed for Casey from when he was growing up to now and how he hopes his platform will continue the important conversation about race.
