How Children Understand Race and How Adults Can Help

Time & Location

May 18, 12:30 PM – 1:30 PM CDT


About the Event

There is a myth in popular culture that children are “colorblind” or don’t notice race. This leads many adults to avoid discussing race and racism with young children or to be unsure how best to do so. In this presentation, Prof. Erin Winkler will review the current research on children’s understandings of race, including how ideas about race form, what children learn and when, why we see changes at various ages, why all of this matters, and how adults can help children understand racial identity, racism, and racial inequities in age-appropriate ways that empower the young children in their lives. The presentation will be followed by a question & answer period.
