A dedicated look at mixed-race identity from parent/carers view point.
This was the first time we had held such an event in London. I think it is fair to say we were all pretty nervous but it went really well. Attendees got the opportunity to ask the questions they rarely get an opportunity to do so.
The main areas we covered were:
Parenting ‘mixed’ children
Changing terminology - What’s in a name?
How to access information, books and resources for children from mixed-race backgrounds.
Developing a positive racial identity for children of mixed-parentage.
