“Color Conversation: Straight Talk on the Race Talk” a Huge Success!
We had a really powerful conversation about talking race with children, being a parent, processing the difficult things we ourselves are facing.
Parents in the audience shared tearful stories of struggle, being excommunicated by extended family members, and more. Others, especially panelists, shared stories of uplifting, strategies, and things that work.
Board member, Jennifer Noble, PhD, was the perfect moderator. She was an amazing balance of sharing her own story and as a clinician- to help people make sense of how they were feeling and unpacking the situation they were facing.
Special thanks to our bold and generous panelists for sharing and connecting with our audience: Ijumaa Jordan, MA, Reed & Allison Garwood, and Khanisha Foster.
Outside of this intense sharing was a beautiful playground and garden for the children, tended to by the school staff, their older siblings, and our own volunteers. How beautiful to see all of the children being together, and just … being.

Would you support a “multiracial” box on the Census if it also meant making civil rights enforcement more difficult? Let us know your thoughts on this question. You can post to our Facebook page. Submit a story to Mixed Space HERE. Or just send us an email to email@example.com.
