Helping kids learn about race is program topic

“How Children Learn About Race and How Adults Can Help” is the topic for a 6 to 8 p.m. Monday, Nov. 4, program at Cedarburg Public Library.

Bridge the Divide, an Ozaukee County grassroots group, is sponsoring the talk by Erin Winkler, associate professor of African and African Diaspora Studies and Urban Studies at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.

Winkler will review current research on children’s understandings of race, including how ideas about race form, what children learn and when, why we see changes at various ages, why all of this matters and how adults can help their children understand racial identity, racism, and racial inequities from an early age in age-appropriate ways that empower their children.

There is no admission fee.
