Tuesday, March 28th: 7:00 pm, South Orange Middle School Library Growing Our Understanding: The Language of Race and Identity. Our kids’ comments are sometimes embarrassing, and their questions can force us to face issues we would rather avoid. Moreover, they may experience racism or the pain of being judged based on heritage or culture. In this workshop participants will learn current vocabulary that supports anti-racism and multi-cultural understanding in the home. We will learn how to develop responses to the questions about race and race observations children make, and the racism they experience. Experts will give concrete suggestions for choosing books that generate discussion and help build conversations.
