Talking to Kids about Race and Diversity

Talking to Kids about Race and Diversity

Hands

Psychologists note several things about the way understandings of race and diverse are passed along to children: first, white parents are very likely to avoid talking about race with their children, assuming their silence will lead to “colorblindness” and second, kids are likely to make their own, usually erroneous, conclusions about the meaning of race and diversity in the vacuum created by their parents’ silence. Join Bromleigh McCleneghan, Associate Pastor for Ministry with Families, as we discuss strategies for broaching these critical topics in our diverse society (or, more likely, strategies for responding when your kids bring them up!).

Scheduled in advance of the MLK holiday, for Friday, January 8, 9:30-11:00am. RSVP at  http://uchucc.us/lk; contact bmccleneghan@uchinsdale.org with questions about childcare.
