Raising Black Children Across Racial Lines

February 22 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm


Join us as we hear the experiences and perspectives of both adult adoptees and adoptive parents. We will explore an array of topics, such as race, racism and privilege, and the types of conversations that are taking place in transracial adoptive homes.
Interracial adoptive family
The adult adoptees on the panel, all of whom are Black or biracial and were adopted by white parents, will talk about their personal experiences growing up and share some of the things they wish their parents had done differently.

Our adoptive parent panelists will discuss what factors went into their decisions to adopt across racial lines, and what awareness and sensitivities they’ve gained through parenting Black children.

Attendees will have a chance to engage with panelists during a Q&A session following the roundtable.
