Raising White Kids: An Anti-Racism Conversation for All of Us @ The Well at Queen Anne United Methodist Church
May 24 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Powerful and difficult conundrums exist when it comes to raising white children in a society that is one of the most racially diverse in the world, while also being full of racial tension and inequity. Developing strategies for raising “healthy” (by definition, “antiracist”) white kids is a critical investment in the well-being and futures of all of our children. This plenary will map common conundrums relative to nurturing anti-racist white identity; conundrums that impact adults of every racial/ethnic group in the U.S., as much as they do our young people. Whether you have or were a white kid or just have relationships with people who used to be or have white kids – the conversation this lecture will enable us to have is for everyone.

Dr. Jennifer Harvey is a writer, speaker, and professor at Drake University. Her work focuses on racial justice and white anti-racism. Dr. Harveys most recent books include Raising White Kids: Bringing Up Children in Racially Unjust America (Abington Press, January 2018) and Dear White Christians: For Those Still Longing for Racial Reconciliation (Wm. B. Ee remains). Dr. Harvey has also contributed to the New York Times and the Huffington Post. She is ordained in the American Baptist Churches (U.S.A.)
