Black parents talk race relations, Ferguson with kids

ST. LOUIS - Some African-American parents say the conversations they have with their children to make sure they're safe and successful might be much different in other households.

They want to bring awareness to these conversations to help break racial stereotypes and bring St. Louis together.

Joseph Anderson Jr., president of the 100 Black Men of Metropolitan St. Louis, and his wife, Reverend Karen Anderson, said many African-American parents tell their children that they need to work hard in school, interact appropriately with police, and be aware of how some might judge them immediately based on their appearance.
