VIRTUAL: Learning From the Past - Why Educating Kids on Race Matters

Calendar/Event Details

Join ParentMap for our next ParentEd talk on a critically important topic. The role of race and racism in our kids’ education is at the forefront of nationwide debates and legislation. To raise fairer, kinder and smarter kids who are prepared to build a more equitable society, we have to reconsider how history and race are taught in our schools. Join ParentMap Live for a powerful talk about why racial bias and the history of race and racism matters in our classrooms — from kindergarten and beyond.

The talk will feature Khalil Gibran Muhammad, professor of History, Race and Public Policy at the Harvard Kennedy School, along with activist Jeffery Robinson, founder of The Who We Are Project. Don’t miss this critical conversation by two of the nation’s leading scholars on race, democracy, inequality and criminal justice.
