(Re)imagining Black boyhood: Who counts as a child?

Dr. Joseph Derrick Nelson’s talk, (Re)imagining Black boyhood: Who counts as a child? opens up a conversation regarding childhood, specifically for Black boys and boyhood and strategies of engagement. Black children are often viewed as older and less trustworthy than other children, constructed as “problems” that need fixing rather than a focusing on the structural and institutional forces imposing a racialized and criminalized identity onto Black boys. This talk will consist of the need to regard Black boyhood through a critical childhood studies lens and radically (re)imagine what Black boyhood is as well as share strategies to support Black boys within and across critical social contexts in their lives, such as home, neighbourhood, and school. When: Thursday, April 26. Time: 6:30 - 8:30 pm. Location: Werklund School of Education, UofC. Cost: Free. Registration opens April 9th and can be accessed via the link below.
