Talking to Our Children About Race
A Matter of Life and Health

As the world around us has become increasingly diverse, it is important that our children develop knowledge, self-awareness and skills that will allow them to navigate cross-cultural relationships with respect. Dr. Stevenson will provide an exploration of racial stress and examine racial literacy as a capacity for improving conversations and relationships.

Dr. Howard Stevenson is the Constance Clayton Professor of Urban Education, Professor of Africana Studies, in the Human Development & Quantitative Methods Division of the Graduate School of Education at the University of Pennsylvania. He is the Director of the Racial Empowerment Collaborative at Penn, designed to promote racial literacy in education, health, and justice institutions. He is also the Director of Forward Promise, the national program office funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, to provide philanthropic support for organizations designed to improve the health of boys and young men of color and their families and is the author of Promoting Racial Literacy in Schools: Differences That Make a Difference. Dr. Stevenson has 30 years of experience as a clinical supervisor and therapist in family and child psychotherapy.
