My Racial Journey


A Guide to
Racial Literacy

For all who work
with children

Professionals who work with young children have a responsibility to recognize the ways we may play a role in disrupting or perpetuating the social injustices that can negatively impact their lives. The way we view, welcome, and interact with children and their families is influenced by the racial experiences that shape both us and them

My Racial Journey is a guided curriculum aimed at helping us challenge the the ways we participate – often unknowingly – in racism by developing basic knowledge and skills about race.

Great for: College Classrooms, Learning Communities, Professional Development
