Research shows that children develop racial biases between ages 2-4. Explicitly discussing race and racism in developmentally appropriate ways is an important step in creating an anti-racist environment. Further, nurturing racial pride benefits children of color socially, cognitively, and academically. Please join us as Dr. Flóra Faragó guides us to a better understanding of how we can create nurturing environments where all children are supported and affirmed.
Kenyan poet Qui Qarre will perform spoken word, thanks to generous support from the Jung Center and Houston Coalition Against Hate.
Participants will receive a copy of the book: Our Skin: A First Conversation about Race (First Conversations) by Megan Madison and Jessica Ralli.
