Exploring the Intersection of Gender and Race for Children Ages 0-8
Black Lives Matter at School Week is an annual movement designed to promote dialogue, curricula, and community events that explore structural racism and the policies that promote equity for Black children. On Wednesday, February 5, 2020, Bank Street’s Center on Culture, Race & Equity will host a symposium as part of Black Lives Matter at School Week that explores the intersection of gender and race for 0- to 8-year-olds.
Because children inhabit multiple identities, it is important to consider the ways in which gender and race intersect for very young Black children, including the disparities they experience in educational settings and also the opportunities for interrupting these disparities as early as possible. Attendees will learn about strength-based approaches and curricula that are being implemented to support, educate, and liberate very young Black girls, boys, and gender non-conforming and transgender children.
We are excited to share that Morningside Center for Teaching Social Responsibility is a community collaborating partner for this event. The collaboration between the Center on Culture, Race & Equity and Morningside Center is a result of our mutual understanding that creating equitable, culturally responsive, and restorative learning environments for our children begins in preschool.
More details and a full agenda will follow in the coming months. To register, follow the link below.
