Alicia Keys is joining forces with Nick News and Nickelodeon for a global discussion about race. The singer will host Kids, Race and Unity: A Nick News Special.

Per People, this special “will amplify the voices and experiences of Black kids across the country amid nationwide demonstrations against systemic racism and police brutality, sparked by the death of George Floyd.”

“I’ve had a vision of a forum that can engage kids during this time and help to focus our attention on how they might be feeling, and this Nick News special is it,” Alicia Keys explains.

She adds, “Talking about race can be sensitive and uncomfortable; and sometimes when 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! This is such an important, vulnerable, honest and beautiful conversation, and I know many families may be searching for the right way to enter it. Let’s really deep dive together.”

Kids, Race and Unity: A Nick News Special will air Monday, June 29 at 7 pm ET on Nickelodeon, TeenNick, and Nicktoons. Afterward, it will stream on Nickelodeon YouTube, Nick On Demand, the Nick App, and the Nick Pluto TV channel.
