"Something Happened in Our Town": Addressing Racial Injustice with Young Children
The American Psychological Association recently published a powerful children's book that also serves as a tool for talking about racial injustice with children. "Something Happened in Our Town" follows a White family and a Black family as they discuss a police shooting of a Black man. The three authors - who are psychologists and colleagues - will join us. They will present excerpts from the book and discuss how parents can utilize the book to spark conversations about racial injustice and child empowerment. The book includes many resources for parents and educators including child-friendly definitions, sample dialogues, and discussion guides. The authors will also discuss child and family reactions to the book and the challenges of introducing anti-bias programming within community organizations.
