Join us for Receptive to Race: Normalizing the Discussion of Race with Children in Libraries, Thursday August 27, 2020 from 12 – 1 PM MT.
Research shows that children notice race at a very young age, and often draw erroneous conclusions if no one speaks to them about it. With a focus on story time, programming, collection development and user services, we will discuss and model ways librarians can talk about race and racism in age appropriate ways with children.
- Apply practical tools for discussing race with young children and their caregivers.
- Explore children’s services (e.g., collection development, reference, programming) through a racial equity lens.
- Understand how to incorporate the discussion of race as a standard early literacy practice.
