How Children Understand Race and How Adults Can Help
Many people avoid discussing race and racism with children
because they believe that children don’t see race, or because they’re unsure
how to have a conversation about it. Join us to hear from Professor Erin
Winkler who will guide parents, families, and educators to help children
understand racial identity, racism, and racial inequities in age-appropriate
ways that empower the young children in their lives.
A question and answer period will follow the presentation.
