Anti-Bias Education with Katie Kissinger

Sunday July 23, 3:00PM

@ Red Emma's

Supporting young children in their positive identity development and in learning about differences is more critical in our society than it has ever been. Join us as we welcome Katie Kissinger, author of the children’s book “All The Colors We Are: The Story of How We Get Our Skin Color” to present her new work, “Anti-Bias Education in the Early Childhood Classroom.” “Anti-Bias Education” provides a useful, clearly outlined guide for implementing anti-bias and anti-oppressive practices in early childhood education settings.

Kristen Jeffers has always been interested in how cities work. She’s also always loved writing things. She went off to a major state university, got a communication degree and then started a more professional Blogger site. Then, in her graduate seminar on urban politics, along with browsing the urbanist blogosphere, she realized that her ideas should have a stronger, clearer voice, one that reflects her identity as a Black southern woman. And with that The Black Urbanist blog was born. Seven years, one Twitter account, one self-published book and a litany of speeches and urban planning projects later, here we are. Kristen will join us to talk about why she started the blog, why she keeps it going and how important it is to bring your personality and your identity to spaces that may or may not be built for you.


In ‘“You Can’t Fire the Bad Ones”: And 18 Other Myths about Teachers, Teachers Unions, and Public Education’, three distinguished educators, scholars, and activists flip the script on many enduring and popular myths about teachers, teachers' unions, and education that permeate our culture. By unpacking these myths, and underscoring the necessity of strong and vital public schools as a common good, the authors challenge readers--whether parents, community members, policymakers, union activists, or educators themselves--to rethink their assumptions.
