Raising Antiracist White Kids: A step-by-step guide to parenting for racial justice
Real challenges exist when it comes to raising white children in a society that is full of racial injustice. Should we teach white kids to be “colorblind”? Or, to notice race? What roles do we want them to play in addressing racism when they encounter it? How do we best do that?
Dr. Jennifer Harvey is an award-winning author, educator and public speaker.
Dr. Harvey’s work focuses primarily on racial justice and white anti-racism. Her most recent book Raising White Kids: Bringing up Children in a Racially Unjust America brings her longtime experience in multi-racial activism to her journey as a parent and was a 2018 Foreword INDIE GOLD Winner. Dr. Harvey is widely published and has written for the New York Times and CNN. She is frequently heard on the radio (including as a guest on her favorite show, NPR’s “It’s Been a Minute with Sam Sanders”–listen here!).
Widely sought after as a public speaker and known for her commitment to growing our collective capacity for justice, Dr. Harvey is also the author of Dear White Christians: For Those Still Longing for Racial Reconciliation. She is a professor of religion and serves as Faculty Director for the Crew Scholars Program at Drake University, and is ordained in the American Baptist Churches (USA).
