Raising Race Conscious Children Podcast: In conversation with Dr. Brigitte Vittrup

Join Raising Race Conscious Children for our first podcast, a conversation with Dr. Brigitte Vittrup, whose research (featured in “Nurture Shock”) we “sit on” quite literally, regarding the power of explicit conversations about race with young children.

The podcast includes conversation on various topics, including:

  • Dr. Vittrup’s research to challenging the legacy of the “color-blind” narrative
  • A constructive conversation about the viral story about the two boys “with the same haircut”
  • Solid parenting advice with regard to what words we use when we talk about race
  • How we can model the ability to mess up and recover from our mistakes when we talk about race with our children

Lori Riddick and Sachi Feris from Raising Race Conscious Children “converse” with Dr. Brigitte Vittrup, followed by a brief Q and A with special guests including guest bloggers and supporters.
