This Saturday, June 13, 2015 I will be speaking to the Parents Group of the Adelaide Sanford Institute about the ways that colorism, hair and identity impact the academic and social development of Black children.
I will spend some time discussing the role that parents play in preparing our kids to overcome these issues and introduce strategies for building esteem and developing a positive cultural identity.
If you are parenting Black children and seeking ways to prepare them for the realities they will face and empower them to love themselves and succeed despite those challenges, then this talk is for you.
