Receptive to Race: Normalizing the Discussion of Race with Children in Libraries
- With Becki Loughlin
- When 08/27/2020 | 12:00p - 1:00p, Mountain Time
- Access the Classroom
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.
