On October 29, 2020, we are bringing together a panel of parents to discuss issues prevalent to Black girls. Many of the challenges faced by Black boys are very similar to what Black girls face but not often discussed. Following up on the first Raising Black Girls roundtable and webinar from 2017, we want to continue with our open and honest dialogue around the realities Black girls face and the added layers of parenting that comes with raising a Black girl today.
Panelists will share the discussions they are having with their daughters and their major concerns are around raising her in today’s world? We will tackle some very serious topics around safety and the emotional toll that the current state of the world has on Black girls.
