How to Talk with Your Kids about Race
An adults-only evening with Allison Broscoe-Smith, PhD
Wednesday, April 29, 2015
When Do You Talk to Kids about Race? What Do You Say?
Parents, teachers, and caregivers will come away with:
- an understanding of basic developmental awareness of children in regards to race
- a grasp of what implicit bias is and how it impacts our children
- support in thinking about HOW we want to engage with children about the topic of race
“People fail to get along because they fear each other; they fear
each other because they don’t know each other; they don’t know
each other because they have not communicated with each other.”
-Martin Luther King Jr.
