Documenting the emergence of a field of Children's Racial Learning

Melissa Giraud
Reflections Website 2023

In this first-ever Reflections on Children’s Racial Learning, we begin to chronicle the emergence of a field of learning and practice centered on children’s racial learning — how and what children learn about race, including but not limited to our explicit efforts as parents and caregivers to teach children about race. We reached out to leaders in five key sectors in which the seeds of field-building have deep roots: Parenting Practice, PK-12 Education, the Health Professions, Children’s Media, and Social Science Research. We asked them to reflect on the movement they're seeing to support healthy children's racial learning in their sectors.

Those videos and headlines don’t tell the full story. The forces of racial regression may capture the headlines, but beneath the waterline a powerful, color-brave countercurrent is gathering momentum. Reflections on Children’s Racial Learning begins to tell the story of that countercurrent.
