About This Event
Designed for: Parents, Caregivers, Early Childhood Educators
Join us for a virtual discussion with moderator, Christine Platt, the renowned author of The Afrominimalist's Guide to Living with Less, and nationally recognized educator and advocate Britt Hawthorne about her debut New York Times Bestselling book, Raising Antiracist Children: A Practical Parenting Guide.
In her newly released book, Britt teaches caregivers about raising children in informed, actionable, and accountable ways. Through stories, activities, tools, and questionnaires, the guide showcases the power we each have to become upstanders to bias, make change, and work towards justice.
Throughout the program, Britt and Christine will explore the books’ central themes: Healthy Bodies, Radical Minds, Conscious Shopping, and Thriving Communities; and
discuss their respective paths towards anti-racism, authorship, and activism.
This program is a joint collaboration between the Let’s Talk! and Early Childhood Education Initiatives. Embedded within all the Initiatives’ work is a commitment to racial equity, developing positive identities, and engaging and supporting the communities around children. Through these Initiatives, The National Museum of African American History and Culture is in a unique position to support the youngest members of our society by providing age-appropriate programming for children; resources for adults at the museum and online; professional development opportunities for educators; and research-based publications.
