FREE Webinar: Promoting the Positive Racial Identity of Black Infants and Toddlers in Early Childhood Programs

February 24 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

Produced in partnership with Equity Research Action Coalition at UNC Frank Porter Graham Child Development Institute and presented by Iheoma U. Iruka, Ph.D. Iheoma is a Research Professor and Fellow at UNC as well as the Founding Director of the Equity Research Action Coalition.

The first 1,000 days are a sensitive period in children’s development. This is critical period for language, emotional, and social development. Evidence is also accumulating about these early years as critical for positive ethnic-racial identity. Positive ethnic-racial identity is protective and promotive for children’s healthy development especially children from racially and linguistically minoritized families and communities. Unfortunately, this is an area rarely discussed and educators who care for and teach babies are undervalued and receive low compensation. In this session we will examine how Black families and their babies have been dealing with the two pandemics – COVID-19 and racism.
