A Special Workshop for All Educators and Caregivers:
The ABCs of Racism: Starting and Sustaining Anti-racist Conversation and Action with Kids
Saturday, September 26
10:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.
A Zoom Presentation sponsored by the John P. Webster Library @ First Church, West Hartford
 
   Mama, why is that lady brown?
   How come the Asian kids are so good at math?
   Why did the police kill Mr. Phil?
   What will happen if immigration comes to take my family away?

 
   Kids notice a lot about the world – including race, inequity, and injustice. They sense that these things matter, and they have questions many of the adults in their lives are not prepared to answer. 
   The John P. Webster Library at First Church West Hartford invites all caregivers and educators to a special interactive Zoom workshop with Wee The People, Boston-based racial justice educators, to explore the barriers that prevent adults from talking about race and racism with kids. Participants will examine the social science of race awareness in children, and identify strategies to start and sustain antiracist conversations and action with kids. Please register here
 
Wee The People was co-founded by racial justice educators Tanya Nixon-Silberg and Francie Latour. Their aim is to inspire children to notice injustice and discover the power of their own voices; explore traditions of resistance and protest through the arts; and support adults in opening difficult conversations - with kids and with each other - about difference, equity, and justice. Wee The People is grounded in the belief that if kids can understand fairness, they can understand justice - and that adults play a huge role in connecting kids’ sense of fairness in their own lives to larger issues of injustice in the world.
