GW Parents, Guardians, and Community Members,
Please consider joining in the next Denver Talks event, “Raising White Kids: An Anti-Racism Conversation for All.” It’s a free event hosted by Denver Arts & Venues, in partnership with the Agency for Human Rights and Community Partnerships and the Office of the Mayor.
Many of us want to be part of bringing up children who are able participants in one of the most racially diverse societies in the world, although it remains full of racial tensions. In the midst of this exist powerful and difficult conundrums when it comes to raising white children in such a society.
– Should we teach them to be “colorblind”?
– Or should we teach them to notice race?
– What roles do we want them to play in addressing racism when they encounter it?
– How best to do that?
On top of it all, when we talk appropriately about race, we must talk about the reality of white privilege and racial injustice. How do we teach about race honestly, then, without making our children feel bad about being white?
