Recorded Webinar

Black Child-White Parent

Black Child-White Parent

In this webinar, The Cradle’s Our Children initiative brings together a panel to share share how listening to the news about racial tension in America today affects them as a parent of a Black child.

We discuss how White parents’ privilege can extend to their child when they are together, but when alone, the privilege is gone for their child. We talk about what parents are doing to connect to their child’s culture and community and if they have significant relationships with adults within their child’s racial/ethnic groups. Finally, how parents respond to people who say “race is a non-issue”, “we don’t see color in this house” or “race doesn’t matter and all you need is love”.
