Missed the LIVE Presentation? If so, check out the following resources and TED Talk by Dr. Berry.

TED TALK: https://youtu.be/q0YDt64IWFU

RESOURCES: https://join.brownicity.com/courses/ResourceLibrary

Here are the books Dr. Berry shared with us during her Live workshop - remember if you use AmazonSmile when you buy you will support your PTA also!

From Brownicity.com: We don’t have to irresponsibly silence our children with the ‘colorblind approach’ when they want to talk about skin tone and race.  We can responsibly normalize conscious conversations to equip children to become competent, comfortable, and courageous as they navigate our hyper-racialized society and seek ways to bring healing and change. 

You can start with some of our favorites.
