In her chat with Harper's Bazaar UK, Jolie also called on children to keep listening and learning in order to educate themselves about human rights and equality.
When it comes to education about racism, the mother of six encourages kids to "listen to those who are being oppressed and never assume to know" what is going on.
"The reason rights do not reach a child in a country or home is that adults are blocking them. So in many cases, the child cannot depend on the adults," Jolie, who is collaborating with Amnesty International on a children’s book, added later in the interview.
"We want to help kids, who are so engaged now, to use their knowledge and fight for their rights and claim now," she said.
