ENCORE: Let's Teach About Race

Mar 6, 2018

12:30pm – 1:30pm CT

Subconscious biases and cultural or community-based understandings of race begin as early as three years old. However, curriculum to combat white superiority and systemic racism often doesn't begin until high school or college, if at all. Can educators help break down the boundaries that make it difficult to talk about race? In this panel, three experts will discuss how race affects our youth and how to best engage students in dialogue about race and culture to combat ingrained racism.
