Reflections on Children's Racial Learning

The inaugural Reflections on Children’s Racial Learning chronicles the substantial work already being done in the emerging field of children’s racial learning and highlights what more can be done to develop the field further.

This first-ever Reflections on Children’s Racial Learning begins to tell the story of that countercurrent. Leaders in the parenting, education, health, children's media and social science research spaces share what they're seeing. It's very encouraging!
