Powerful and unique conundrums exist when it comes to raising white children societies that are racially diverse yet full of racial injustice. Should we teach white kids to be “colorblind”?

Confirmed speakers: Jennifer Harvey, author of Raising White Kids: Bringing Up Children in a Racially Unjust America and Andrew Parker and Sarah Adomako-Ansah, the Black Teachers' Association of Alberta. This is the last session of a five part series: Breaking the Cycle 2.0.
