    Racial microaggressions: Redressing inequities for Black boys and girls in early childhood education

    In recent years, practitioners have become aware of the role that racial microaggressions have on learning, development, and success of young children. Participants will learn what microaggressions are and how they serve as a barrier to academic success for Black children. ECE counter-narratives will amplify strategies and practices that parents, teachers, and community advocates can use to reduce the prevalence of microaggressions.
