Event Title:
Talking About Race with Children

The Bank Street College community affirms that teaching and learning are expressions of justice. We are guided by the belief that human beings learn in the context of meaningful relationships and through doing, making, and changing the world around us.

Join us for a panel discussion and community conversation on talking about racial justice in the context of the current pandemic and the momentum of the Black Lives Matter protest that have garnered international attention. Participants will have an opportunity to ask questions and brainstorm ideas for engaging children in conversations about racial justice.
