Talking about Race with Our Children as Parents of Color


A practical, developmentally grounded discussion for parents of color about talking to children of color about race in the context of the white Supremacy that permeates their world and ours. Parents will explore how to introduce and expand conversations in a manner reflective of their child’s developmental stage and be presented examples of how other families, educators and scholars think about strategies for balancing race-based pride with discussing the realities of oppression. 


Participants will be able to…

  • Identify strategies for talking about race with children based on developmental milestones.
  • Identify context for their family’s experience in navigating conversations about race.
  • Discuss the current context for supporting children in building understanding of White Supremacy and race-based oppression.
