About this Event

Virtual Event: Race and Parenting in Extraordinary Times

The second in a series of Retold virtual events by and for alumnae.

Hosted in partnership with the Maxine Platzer Lynn Women’s Center, the Center for Race and Public Education in the South, and TheSheLab.

In these final weeks of summer, the back-to-school season looms large for parents, caregivers, and educators. As children begin to reconnect with school environments – in whatever form that takes – they are likely to encounter heightened discourse on race. How can we best prepare the children in our lives for conversations about race and racism with peers with diverse identities, experiences, and perspectives? As we engage children in dialogue around the racial turmoil in America and the dynamics of race in our own lives, how can we guide them in honest, empowering, developmentally appropriate ways?

Join alumnae Valerie Harrison (Col ’84), Stephanie Rowley (Col ’95, ’97), Leigh-Ann Webb (Educ ’05, Med ’09, Dar ’19), Christen Edwards (Educ ’18), and Riana Elyse Anderson (Grad ’11, ’15) for an interactive panel discussion exploring race, parenting, and transforming conversation in this extraordinary period. Moderated by Jaronda Miller-Bryant (Maxine Platzer Lynn Women’s Center) and Johari Harris (Curry School of Education and Human Development).

This event is #open to all UVA alumni, parents, and friends.
