Speaker: Salena Brody, PhD
UT Dallas professor
Title: Conversations that Create Change: Talking to Kids about Injustice
Research indicates that children are aware of racial categories from a very young age and that explicit conversations about racism can improve racial attitudes. Further, teaching children about the history of marginalized groups is among the most effective methods to reduce bias. This talk will explore how and where children receive information about racial injustice, focusing on four main areas: children’s racial awareness as they develop, parent/child conversations about race within the home, race-focused curricula at school, and real-world interventions aimed at reducing bias.
