Nurturing Resilience and Joy in/among Young BIPOC Children

November 19, 2020 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm

U.S. society is too often unkind to Black and Indigenous children and children of color (BIPOC children), raising the risk that these children learn to be unkind to themselves and each other. If we are to raise a generation of BIPOC children who fully recognize their own humanity, and that of their peers within and across lines of race and ethnicity, we need the entire village involved: aunts, uncles, and grandparents; mentors and coaches; children’s book authors and publishers; toy manufacturers; television and film, and video producers. And more.

The roles and responsibilities of parents, caregivers and educators are especially crucial for our youngest children. For Part 2 of this conversation, we focus on the role of educators in considering the following questions.

What are the big challenges parents, caregivers, and educators must meet if we are to nurture young children who are resilient, joyful and recognize each other’s full humanity?
What tools, resources, and community do we need to help meet those challenges?
