OEP is holding a four-week webinar series on how to raise race conscious kids. Topics will include how parents and teachers can address race, the myth of color-blindness, the role of racial scripts, and the future of racial justice.
We will use the book "Raising White Kids: Bringing Up Children In A Racially Unjust America" by Jennifer Harvey to guide the discussions. However, reading the book is not required.
This webinar is a space for all community members to join in conversations about raising all kids to be race conscious, not just for people raising white kids.
We will be meeting every Thursday, 8pm-9pm ET, July 23rd through August 13, 2020.
What to expect in each session
- Personal sharing in the larger group and in breakout pairs.
- Open conversations discussing the role of parents, teachers, and other community members in raising race conscious kids.
- Discussion of issues and questions raised by Jen Harvey's book [reading the text is recommended but optional]
This webinar takes place via Zoom. You will receive the link after registering.
