Looking Back to Move Forward: Unpacking Our Own Racial Socialization
July 13 @ 8:30 am - 9:30 pm EDT
As adults in the lives of children, we play vital roles in shaping how and what they learn about race. Whether we identify as White or BIPOC people, an important starting point is to look honestly at how we, ourselves, were socialized around race as children.
What did we learn about being “White,” “Asian American,” “Latino,” “Mixed-race,” and other identities – whether as personal identity or other-identity? At home or school, how did we learn to account for racial segregation and racial inequality? What did we learn about race that we then had to try to unlearn? What remains to be unlearned?
These are weighty issues. We’ll be joined by three people, with different racial identities and socialization histories, who will reflect on the race work they’ve done and what they’ve learned. And, as always, we also look forward to hearing from you.
