PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — Amazing things can happen when you have difficult conversations with your kids. At least they did for Jelani Memory.

The Portland entrepreneur joins 6 Questions this week to talk about why he left a successful software company to write a book and become a force for generational change.

He chats with KOIN 6’s Emily Burris about his original book, A Kids Book About Racism, how it has grown into A Kids Company About…, and why it is important to address complicated subject matter with children.

Memory also talks about growing up black in a city not known for its diversity and what he thinks about the ongoing protests in Portland.
