In today's episode of Lean Into You, we talk with Dr. Toni Sturdivant, a researcher and consultant working in forming positive racial identities. In our chat, we will talk about how to lead this work with the children in our care. We will cover:
1) The Clark's "Doll Test" and where there is room for improvement
2) When children start to notice difference and show preference
3) The steps for formulating our own racial identity
4) Strategies for building strong racial identities in children
