Join the conversation with SAAACAM and Race Ed SA to raise your awareness of racism, unintended biases, colorism, classism, prejudices, and more. Each month, we will explore a different topic.
For October, we discuss, stereotype. A stereotype is an idea or belief many people have about a thing or group that is based upon how they look on the outside, which may be untrue or only partly true. Stereotyping people is a type of prejudice because what is on the outside is a small part of who a person is. Stereotypes might be used as reasons to discriminate against another person, or sometimes for a humorous effect in many television programs.
The curriculum is divided into age-appropriate sections with a myriad of fun yet thought-provoking and engaging activities. At the end of each month, elementary students will engage in a virtual storytime. Middle school and high school students will engage in a webinar with the RaceEd founders as hosts, a subject matter expert, and a licensed counselor.
Other topics include:
- Historical Eurocentric Education
- Diasporic Education
- White Privilege
- Systemic Racism
- Cultural Celebrations
- Racial Pride/Black Dignity
