The Masterclass provides a safe place for our children to open up about their experiences of microaggressions and racism. Here are is why you need to sign up your kids. Racism is real. It is not some imagined nonsense from lazy minds. It can leave scars. And wounds. Here are some examples of what black children deal with in their classrooms and in the play grounds of their schools.
When you are called a ‘chimpanzee’ or an orangutan by your friends at school and the teacher never sees it happen. Here are some uncomfortable examples.
When your sandwich is ridiculed at school.
When your teachers set low expectations for your kids.
When your kids spend more time in the school corridors or in the restroom than in class actually learning.
When your child does not want to go to school.
When your child wants to have a light skin.
When your child stops talking.
When your child stays in their room every day after school.
