Before Racism is an emerging early childhood educational program designed to support and improve the ways very young children learn about, form, internalize, and express attitudes regarding racial identity and racial intolerance. Before Racism will explore and address the concept of differences in people that children observe at a very young age and begin to make judgments about as they grow older. The program’s initial focus will be on attitudes and behaviors related to Black people; over time, this experiential learning and teaching model will be extended to other populations of color in our society.
