Survey: Growing Up While Black

Our children are enduring racial slurs, offensive gestures, violent attacks, race-related bullying, and over-policing.  We have been horrified over the last decade by escalating instances of violence against Black men and boys, often at the hands of law enforcement.  Over the last 3 years, we are seeing rampant hostility towards Black boys AND girls in businesses, neighborhoods, and school systems.  Some cynics may say “What’s new?”  Well, a lot is new and I want hear from parents.

If you are raising a Black daughter or son, I would love to hear your thoughts on what it’s like “Growing Up While Black” today. I am working on a multimedia project that is centered on this topic.

Parents — as your children head back to school, make sure you are prepared to help them have a successful year. Not only do you want them to earn good grades, you’ll want them to stay on top of their school work to avoid stress, effectively navigate social situations, and respond to bullying, if it happens.  Join our own 2019 DC Mother of the Year, Carol Muleta and the DC Metro Association of American Mothers Inc. on Saturday, September 14 for a free Back to School Parent Forum that will address all of these topics.  This event will be held at Shepherd Park Public Library from 10:30 AM to 1:30 PM.  You will hear from three great speakers who will give you tips to make sure your child starts the year off right!
