Mercer Island Parent Edge is hosting Dr. Caprice Hollins who will share the presentation “Talking With Our Children About Race” on Tuesday, January 17th, 6:30 – 8:30 pm, at Islander Middle School.

More information from Parent Edge:
Recent research has shown that children have a complex understanding of differences and stereotypes. They can judge their peers based on stereotypes that adults want to believe children in today’s generation don’t have. In this presentation, Dr. Hollins will explore how young people learn about race and privilege. And, she will demonstrate how to find teachable moments to promote anti-bias messages that actively counter what children may witness and internalize from the world.
