Geared for White or multiracial audiences, this interactive virtual workshop will explore fundamental concepts in racism and antiracism, 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 antiracist conversations and action.
This workshop will be led by Wee the People co-founder and children's book author Francie Latour, whose award-winning picture book Auntie Luce's Talking Paintings tells an inter-generational tale of culture, community, and identity through a Haitian-American girl and her beloved aunt, an artist who lives in Haiti.
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.
