Supporting children while they make sense of race can feel overwhelming, particularly for white parents. As young people experience both overt and subtle racism, how can adults learn to effectively support adoptees of color? Following the screening of conversations with adopted tweens and teens of color, visiting author and nationally-recognized adoption educator, Beth Hall, will address questions pertaining to identity development at the intersection of race and adoption, and what all adoptive parents need to know about birth/first families.
