Webinar description: An important part of healthy youth development is understanding multiple aspects of one’s identity—including those connected to issues of race. Recent research shows that too often adults in the lives of kids deny and ignore racial slurs and tensions because they are scared or lack the skills to intervene. This webinar discusses barriers that get in the way of our conversations about race and presents suggestions for engaging in “race talk” based on building community, engaging in deep personal reflection, dialoguing across differences and taking action for social justice. The webinar will feature Shayla R. Griffin, Ph.D. drawing from her research and forthcoming book titled Those Kids, Our Schools.
Audience: Teachers, administrators, social workers, youth workers and others who work with youth.
