Antibias Education and Beyond: Film Screening and Panel Discussion

Join P.R.I.D.E (Positive Racial Identity Development In Early Education) for a documentary screening of Reflecting on Anti-bias Education in Action: The Early Years and a discussion with the filmmakers. Individuals may register via the P.R.I.D.E. website.

About the Film

Produced by Debbie LeeKeenan and John Nimmo, this powerful documentary  features vignettes of anti-bias strategies in early childhood classrooms interspersed with teachers reflecting on their practice.  By taking viewers into diverse early childhood classrooms, and focusing on the voices of teachers, the film seeks to demonstrate the importance of teacher reflection on identity, context, and practice in anti-bias education and provides a much-needed resource for teacher education and professional development.

About P.R.I.D.E

P.R.I.D.E. is a program within the Office of Child Development at the University of Pittsburgh School of Education. Our goals are to help young African American children develop a positive racial identity, support teachers and parents by building their racial knowledge, and raise awareness of the impact of race on young children. We provide them with various learning opportunities, including educator trainings, Parent Village sessions for Black children and their families, Speaker Series events to educate the community and art festivals created to immerse young Black children in a space designed to celebrate them.
