Educational Racism and Our Children

  • Admiral Bird 2600 California Avenue Southwest Seattle, WA, 98116 United States (map)

This 2 hour conversational workshop will focus and address racism experienced by children as students in an academic setting as well as communal one. The conversation will touch upon race, melanated students, cultural competency and cultures in the curriculum. The role that racism has in the academic setting and school culture will be discussed also. This will be an atmosphere of informational exchanges of ideologies and practices.

If you are expecting a formal and structured training workshop with handouts, powerpoint slides (exceeding 10 slides) lecturing - this is not that type of venue! This is a workshop that uses the unconventional 21st century tool of "Conversation." Through conversation, guided by Allie, a Social Change Entrepreneur, and known as "Allie the Conversation Starter," participants will be challenged to be honestly raw on classroom expectations, controversial issues and certain racial issues that either they encountered (or have faced) in the classroom, as well as out of it - as teachers, parents and/or as students. 

This event, which is a part of the conversation of undoing racism, will appeal to teachers, parents, community leaders and organizations; yet, this discussion is for anyone interested. Limited Seating. We all are effected by what occurs in and out of the school system! 

Directions: On the corner of California and Admiral, just take the Admiral exit ff the west Seattle bridge. The space is shared with a flower shop called The Flower Lab.
