062221 racial socialization 700 x 460

Let's talk about racial socialization – what it is and its implications for raising anti-racist young kids (0 to 8) of all colors. We're joined by an early childhood expert who will discuss four common racial socialization strategies and discuss which are effective and when. We'll talk to her about how early childhood teachers can be allies and anti-racists in their work. We'll also be joined by two parents who will share their experiences intentionally socializing their young children around race. As usual, we’ll reserve time for your questions and comments!
