Talking With Kids About Race 101 and 201
How does one start a conversation about race with a child? In the wake of the uprisings in Ferguson, NYC, and Baltimore, as well as recent racist vandalism in San Francisco, many of us are imagining that another world is possible. We know that the potential for a world in which unarmed Black Americans are not killed regularly by police has to start with us. In fact, the most powerful change we can make is on the micro level, with what we teach our children about race and implicit bias. The day will have two parts, both led by renowned race educator Micia Mosely, who also led a 101 training for the collective in June. It will take place in the Women's Building and is adults only. If you want to come but need help finding a sitter, let us know.
You can attend both, or only one. It is strongly recommended that you attend the 101 before attending the 201 (if you attended the event in June, that counts as the 101):
November 7th, 9am-12pm
Talking With Kids About Race 101: The beginnings of the conversation, which outline the difference between talking about skin color and talking about racism, race construction in America and what it means for us now, and what language to use with kids.
November 7th, 1:30pm-4pm
Talking With Kids About Race 201: Everyone who attended a 101, either in June or on the morning of November 7th, is invited to attend this second session. We will go deeper into the problems facing your community and family personally, putting what we've learned into practice through role play, conversation, and interactive games.
