The Effects of Racism on Children
Breaking a Cycle of Intolerance and Hate
17th March 2021 (18:30 pm - 19.45 pm)
There is relatively little research on the impact of racism on children. If adult role models sow seeds of intolerance against anyone perceived to be different from themselves? Does this lead to a cycle of bullying and violence; how can it be broken, and what becomes of a child who is a victim? Can trauma be repaired?
The speakers are:
Kam Bhui CBE FRCPsych is an eminent Professor of Psychiatry and Hon Consultant Psychiatrist with a special interest in ethnic inequalities, including the role of society, institutional and interpersonal discrimination and racism as drivers of poor health.
Beki Martin is Executive Director of Facing History and Ourselves; its teaching strategies have proven to significantly increase engagement, empathy, tolerance, and critical thinking skills in children, leading to civic responsibility.
