Race, Racial Identity and Racism in Early Childhood

May 6, 2023 @ 2:00 pm 4:00 pm

Research shows that children develop racial biases between ages 2-4.  Explicitly discussing race and racism in developmentally appropriate ways is an important step in creating an anti-racist environment. Moreover, nurturing racial pride benefits children of color socially, cognitively, and academically.

Please join the Center for the Healing of Racism for “Race, Racial Identity and Racism in Early Childhood,” a Saturday afternoon workshop for parents, teachers and others who work with young children, on May 6, 2023, 2:00-4:00 PM.  The workshop, led by Dr. Flóra Faragó, will guide us to a better understanding of how we can create nurturing environments where all children are supported and affirmed.  The program will take place at 3412 Crawford Avenue, Houston, TX 77004.

Dr. Faragó, is an Associate Professor in Human Development and Family Studies at Stephen F. Austin State University. Her teaching and research interests center around children’s prejudice and stereotype development, anti-bias and anti-racist curricula and parenting, and inclusive early childhood education related to race and gender.

Kenyan poet Qui Qarre will perform spoken word, thanks to generous support from the Jung Center and Houston Coalition Against Hate.  Participants will receive a copy of the book:  Our Skin:  A First Conversation about Race (First Conversations) by Megan Madison and Jessica Ralli.

This program is free and open to the public, with donations encouraged.  Free parking is available in Lot 9 at Holman and Crawford/Almeda.  To reserve your spot please register no later than May 5, 2023 at:  https://www.centerhealingracism.org/event/race-racial-identity-and-racism-in-early-childhood/
