engAGE and Concordia’s Black Perspectives Office are pleased to host an expert panel discussion on Adultified Children of Colour: Intersections of Age and Race. Expert panelists will come together to discuss the underexamined interaction of ageism and racism among children of colour.
Adultification bias names a form of racial prejudice in which children of colour are seen to be older than they in fact are and more “adult-like” than white children of the same age. Panelists will discuss how racism ages children of colour and denies them some of the privileges of childhood and this impact on their lives.
All are invited and welcome to attend this virtual event.
