LS-B7: Cultivating the Development of Black Boys with an Equity Mindset


Early Childhood Education



Learn about culturally responsive strength-based strategies to support Black Boys utilizing an equity mindset from infancy through early childhood.   The session will provide historical context, regarding institutionalized and structural racism that affects the development of Black Boys and how early supports can counteract the effects of racism through ongoing teacher development, quality learning environments, and access to health and wellness services.  Creating success for African American boys requires thoughtful commitment and focus to offer high-quality learning environments. The ongoing professional development of education staff— like coaches, education managers, and supervisors— is key to this effort.  Participants will be encouraged to share their lived experiences as well as ask questions during the lecture.
