Raising Black Girls

Raising Black Girls is an honest dialogue about some of the tough realities and complex issues that Black children may experience and how their parents can guide, support and prepare them for a society that is far from color blind.

Join us for a moderated panel of African American women. Our panelists come from varied backgrounds. Some were transracially placed as young children. All are distinguished professionals in their respective fields.

They will reflect back to their childhood as well as their current role as mothers of Black girls. They will share openly and honestly about the types of discussions that are taking place in their own homes, as well as the everyday fears they have about their daughters’ safety and how they are raising them to become strong Black women.

We will pose to the panelists the concerns we have heard from adoptive families who are raising Black girls. Concerns such as:

  • Low self-esteem around hair and body images.
  • Why Black girls are considered disruptive, defiant and sassy.
  • How to raise strong, confident Black women.
