Kids notice a lot about the world – including skin color, racial differences, inequity and injustice. They sense that these things matter, and they have questions that many of the adults in their lives are not prepared to answer.
Geared for everyone, this interactive workshop, led by Francie Latour, a cofounder of Wee the People, will explore fundamental concepts in racism and anti-racism, the barriers that block adults from taking about race and racism with kids, the social science of race awareness in children, and strategies to build the racial literacy that is urgently needed to engage our children in anti-racist conversations and action. Wee the People is a Boston Based social justice project that teaches children and adults about racism, protest, class, gender and xenophobia. This workshop will run 2 hours on Tuesday, October 19 from 6 until 8 pm. There is a maximum of 32 participants for this virtual presentation.
