This website is a necessary hub of resources to add to the conversation about race with young children that first derived from a research project in Toronto. “Can we Talk about Race?” Confronting Colour-blindness in ECE Settings was a qualitative two-year research project funded by the Social Science and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) in 2014. This project was based in Toronto, Ontario. The research team is comprised of Dr. Rachel Berman (Ryerson University), Dr. Alana Butler (Queen's University), Dr. Beverly-Jean Daniel (Ryerson University) , Natalie Royer (Humber College) and Maggie MacNevin.
The findings of this study illustrate the need to foster cross-racial dialogues with young children that can support positive citizenship engagement in an increasingly global and diverse society. The goal of this website is to have a platform where people can have access to resources that will continue the conversations about race in educational settings and the need to implement anti-racist pedagogies in early childhood education.
