BKLYN Early Childhood Educator Series: ABCs of Racism: Starting the Conversation about Race and Racism with Kids (CTLE-2)
Brooklyn Public Library — Virtual
Why is that lady brown? How come the Asian kids are so good at math? Why did the police kill Mr. Phil? What will happen if immigration comes to take my family away? Kids notice a lot about the world – including race, ethnicity, inequity and injustice. They sense that these things matter, and they have questions many educators are not prepared to answer. This interactive workshop will explore the barriers that prevent adults from talking about race and racism with kids, examine the social science of race awareness in children, and identify strategies to start the conversation with kids about the complexities of race, racism, and racial differences. ABCs of Racism is facilitated by Little Uprisings.
