In My Skin: Supporting Positive Racial Identity Development in Black Children
All of us receive powerful messages about race and our racial identity all the time, messages that can significantly affect how we think and feel about ourselves and others. All this may be especially true for Black children living in a racialized country. The Positive Racial Identity Development in Early Childhood program at the University of Pittsburgh (the P.R.I.D.E. Program) works with the adults in children’s lives to help them foster positive racial identity in Black children, aged 3 to 8.

Join us for a conversation with Aisha White, one of the principals of P.R.I.D.E., to talk about what's meant by “positive racial identity,” to discuss the challenges Black children, in particular, face in developing a healthy racial identity, and to hear some practical, research-supported ideas for how those of us who love young Black children can support them on their paths to healthy growth and development.
