Talking with Children & Youth About Race with Caprice D. Hollins, Psy.D. on March 26, 2020 at 6:00 pm
Recent research has shown that children have very complex understandings of differences and stereotypes. Far from being colorblind, most children are aware of how their own skin color is an advantage or disadvantage. They also judge their peers based on stereotypes that adults might like to believe young children in today’s generation don’t have. Because of this, it is important to give children anti-bias messages through words and actions and to actively counter what they are internalizing and witnessing in the world.
In this workshop, we will explore how young people learn and practice racism and privilege. Participants will learn strategies for acting on teachable moments and ways to create counter-narratives.
- Learn how children see and understand race
- Learn ways to support a healthy ethnic identity development in children
- Learn strategies for talking with children about race and countering bias
