What White Children Need to Know About Race


In her talk at the 2016 NYSAIS Annual Conference for Heads of School, Dr. Ali Michael, University of Pennsylvania researcher and the Director of the Race Institute for K-12 Educators, discusses white racial socialization and how white families teach (or do not) their children how to talk about race. Drawing from both her own life experiences and those of numerous research subjects, Dr. Ali Michael presents her research team's recommendations for helping white children to grow up with anti-racist, positive racial identities.
