Raising Multiracial Children, Part 2: Dismantling Anti-Blackness in Multiracial Families

Tuesday, July 28, 2020 @ 8:30 pm ET

During the second webinar of this two part series on anti-racist parenting and multiracial children, our guests return to discuss anti-Blackness and how anti-Black messaging shows up in multiracial families (including non-Black families). Referencing recent examples from social media, our guests breakdown three common myths that perpetuate anti-Blackness within multiracial families, and describe how these myths negatively impact the identity development of multiracial Black children specifically. To conclude this series, our guests offer tangible steps that parents and caregivers can take now to actively reject White supremacy and anti-Blackness and build resilience as a multiracial family. As always we welcome your questions and comments!
