Are young children ready to talk about race and racism and, if so, how can I have these conversations?

How can I talk about being white if I didn’t talk about it growing up?

In this workshop we will explore stories and questions young children bring as well as research and best practices that can support these conversations. This workshop is open to all and is designed for families and caregivers of white children.

Kate Engle is an early childhood educator who has taught 3-year-olds for 11 years in New York City independent schools. She currently works with educators and parents as a trainer with Border Crossers, co-facilitating workshops on Talking About Race in the Classroom. She is an organizer with the citywide White Anti-Racist Educators in Independent Schools group and consults with schools to explore racial identity development and how white racial identity impacts educators, students, and communities.
