Speaking directly to parents raising Black children in a world of police brutality, racialized violence, and disenfranchisement, this guidebook combines powerful storytelling with practical exercises, encouraging readers to imagine methods of parenting rooted in liberation rather than fear. Parenting for Liberation, written by activist and mother Trina Greene Brown who founded the multimedia platform of the same name, fills a critical gap in currently available resources for liberated parenting. Pairing personal stories from her successful podcast series with open-ended prompts designed to inspire reflection and creativity, the book provides guidance for those seeking to dismantle harmful narratives about the Black family, initiate difficult conversations on social issues with their children, and find community with other parents who share their struggle.

Raising Freedom s Child

Raising Freedom s Child

Raising Freedom's Child illustrates how intensely the image of the black child captured the imaginations of many Americans during the upheavals of the Civil War era.

The end of slavery in the United States inspired conflicting visions of the future for Americans, and the black child became a figure upon which people projected their hopes and fears about slavery's abolition. As a member of the first generation of African Americans raised in freedom, the black child-freedom's child-offered up the possibility that blacks might soon enjoy the same privileges as whites: landowner-ship, equality, autonomy. Yet for most white southerners, this vision was unwelcome, even frightening. Many northerners, too, expressed doubts about the consequences of abolition for the nation and its identity as a "white" republic. From the 1850s to the official end of Reconstruction in 1877, Raising Freedom's Child examines slave emancipation and opposition to it as a far-reaching, national event with profound social, political, and cultural consequences. Mary Niall Mitchell analyzes multiple views of the black child in letters, photographs, newspapers, novels, and court cases-to demonstrate how Americans contested and defended slavery and its abolition. Raising Freedom's Child illustrates how intensely the image of the black child captured the imaginations of many Americans during the upheavals of the Civil War era. Through public struggles over the black child, Mitchell argues, Americans by turns challenged and reinforced the racial inequality fostered under slavery in the United States. Only with the triumph of segregation in public schools in 1877 did the black children lose their central role in the national debate over civil rights, a role they would not play again until the 1950s.

You can't avoid it, because it's everywhere. In the looks my kids get in certain spaces, the manner in which some people speak to them, the stuff that goes over their heads. Stuff that makes them cry even when they don't know why. How do you bring up your kids to be kind and happy when there is so much out there trying to break them down? Bringing Up Race is an important book, for all families whatever their race or ethnicity. Racism cuts across all sectors of society - even the Queen will have to grapple with these issues, as great grandmother to a child of mixed ethnicity. It's for everyone who wants to instil a sense of open-minded inclusivity in their kids, and those who want to discuss difference instead of shying away from tough questions. Uju draws on often shocking personal stories of prejudice along with opinions of experts, influencers and fellow parents to give prescriptive advice making this an invaluable guide. Bringing Up Race explores: - When children start noticing ethnic differences (hint: much earlier than you think) - What to do if your child says something racist (try not to freak out) - How to have open, honest, age-appropriate conversations about race - How children and parents can handle racial bullying - How to recognise and challenge everyday racism, aka microaggressions A call to arms for ALL parents, Bringing Up Race starts the conversation which will mean the next generation have zero tolerance to racial prejudice, and grow up understanding what kindness and happiness truly mean. 'Uju Asika has written a necessary book for our times. She throws up huge questions (and responds to them intelligently and with heart). This isn't just a book for talking to children - whatever race or colour they are - about racism and all the other intersecting isms that divide us, it is a book for everyone dedicated to creating a better, kinder world. This crucial book should be required reading!' - Chika Unigwe, author of On Black Sisters' Street, winner of the Nigeria Prize for Literature in 2012, the Bonderman professor for Creative Writing at Brown University and judge of the Man Booker International Prize in 2017. 'This book could not be more timely. With so many scrabbling around for resources to help navigate our racialized times, Asika draws upon her own experience as a Black Nigerian mother of two boys to offer parents, teachers, carers, educators these stories for survival. As Asika notes, race can no longer be ignored - her own journey is instructive for all - from running the popular 'Babes About Town' (blogging on the immersive cultural education available for her kids in London and beyond) to now deliberately and necessarily making the explicit connections to raising happy Black boys in a prejudiced world. Written with engaging wit, candour, and verve, and containing heart-breaking and heart-warming anecdotes, Bringing Up Race is a needed call to action for all concerned with a future free from racial prejudice.' - Sai Murray, writer/poet/graphic artist, creative director at Liquorice Fish and trustee of The Racial Justice Network

After raising eight children and with decades of psychology experience, Dr. Robert Williams is uniquely qualified to provide this much-needed book on how to raise black children properly from a black perspective. In "Raising Black Kids to be O.K.," parents will learn how to develop a black identity, deal with racial profiling and questions about biracial children, build character traits such as honesty and responsibility, and instill compassion and patience. One African-American parent's perspective highlights the reason a book on raising black kids properly is needed: A lot of black parents aren't doing their job. They are too young or immature to be parents in the first place. Some of them are drinking, and/or using drugs and some of them do not understand what they're supposed to be doing to raise productive, successful children. Perhaps they, themselves, have no clear examples of good parenting. Most parents, at some point or another, find themselves at their wits' end on how to handle a problem with their child. "Raising Black Kids to be O.K." shows parents through proverbs, real examples and fables how to cope with these problems and help their child eventually become a mature, well-adjusted adult. The book teaches black parents to be consistent in parenting, such as by establishing a discipline plan for handling both simple and difficult family problems ranging from bossiness to disrespect and bullying. It also discusses common mistakes black parents make in raising their kids, provides guidelines for correcting them and offers examples of proper -- and improper -- child-rearing techniques. Dr. Robert Williams has spent 25 years as professor of psychology and black studies at two universities and 30-plus years in private practice as a clinical psychologist, as well as coining the term "ebonics." Williams earned a master's degree in educational psychology from Wayne State University and a Ph.D. in clinical psychology from Washington University in St. Louis - the first African-American to earn a doctorate in psychology from that university. Williams, a longtime critic of cultural bias in standardized testing, developing the Black Intelligence Test of Cultural Homogeneity, which led to awareness of cultural bias in IQ testing. Williams himself scored only 82 on an IQ test in high school but enrolled in Philander Smith College, graduating with honors. He has been a guest on national television programs relating to IQ testing, including CBS's "IQ Myth" with Dan Rather, "Prime Time Saturday Night," "The Phil Donohue Show" and "The Montel Williams Show." As professor of psychology and African and African-American studies at Washington University, Williams developed both its Black Studies Program and the Graduate Training Program in Minority Mental Health. He also served as the Distinguished Visiting Professor of Black Studies at the University of Missouri-Columbia and as interim director of Black Studies. Williams was distinguished further by being inducted into the Arkansas Black Hall of Fame. Now retired, he and his wife, Ava, have been married for 65 years.

For decades, Katie D’Angelo and Valerie Harrison engaged in conversations about race and racism. However, when Katie and her husband, who are white, adopted Gabriel, a biracial child, Katie’s conversations with Val, who is black, were no longer theoretical and academic. The stakes grew from the two friends trying to understand each other’s perspectives to a mother navigating, with input from her friend, how to equip a child with the tools that will best serve him as he grows up in a white family. Through lively and intimate back-and-forth exchanges, the authors share information, research, and resources that orient parents and other community members to the ways race and racism will affect a black child’s life—and despite that, how to raise and nurture healthy and happy children. These friendly dialogues about guarding a child’s confidence and nurturing positive racial identity form the basis for Do Right by Me. Harrison and D’Angelo share information on transracial adoption, understanding racism, developing a child’s positive racial identity, racial disparities in healthcare and education, and the violence of racism. Do Right by Me also is a story about friendship and kindness, and how both can be effective in the fight for a more just and equitable society.

This superb, rational, and highly readable volume answers a deeply felt need. Parents and educators alike have long struggled to understand what meanings race might have for the very young, and for ways to insure that every child grows up with a healthy sense of self. Marguerite Wright handles sensitive issues with consummate clarity, practicality, and hope. Here we have an indispensable guide that will doubtless prove a classic. --Edward Zigler, sterling professor of psychology and director, Yale Bush Center in Child Development and Social Policy A child's concept of race is quite different from that of an adult. Young children perceive skin color as magical--even changeable--and unlike adults, are incapable of understanding adult predjudices surrounding race and racism. Just as children learn to walk and talk, they likewise come to understand race in a series of predictable stages. Based on Marguerite A. Wright's research and clinical experience, I'm Chocolate, You're Vanilla teaches us that the color-blindness of early childhood can, and must, be taken advantage of in order to guide the positive development of a child's self-esteem. Wright answers some fundamental questions about children and race including: * What do children know and understand about the color of their skin? * When do children understand the concept of race? * Are there warning signs that a child is being adversely affected by racial prejudice? * How can adults avoid instilling in children their own negative perceptions and prejudices? * What can parents do to prepare their children to overcome the racism they are likely to encounter? * How can schools lessen the impact of racism? With wisdom and compassion, I'm Chocolate, You're Vanilla spells out how to educate black and biracial children about race, while preserving their innate resilience and optimism--the birthright of all children.

As the multiracial population in the United States continues to rise, new models for our understanding of mixed-race children and how their conception of racial identity must be developed. A wide divide between academics who research biracial identity, and the everyday world of parents and practitioners who raise and deal with mixed-race children exists. This book aims to fill this gap by providing an extensive synthesis of the existing research in the field, as well as a model for better understanding the unique process of racial identity development for mixed-race children. Raising Biracial Children provides parents, educators, social workers, and anyone interested in multiracial issues with an accessible framework for understanding healthy mixed-race identity development and to translate those findings into practical care-giving strategies.
