Friday, November 17, 2017 - 6:00pm to 8:00pm
Join the inaugral talk with Dr. Beverly Tatum, national best selling author of Why Are All the Black Kids Sitting Together in the Cafeteria? And Other Conversations About Race.
Building on the model of children’s activities offered during the widely popular Harambee II Black Arts Festivals, the P.R.I.D.E. Pop Ups Arts Festivals will consist of indoor and outdoor mini arts festivals that travel to three Pittsburgh communities; Homewood, the Hill District, and East Liberty, in August, September and October 2017.
During the half day festivals, artists will engage children aged 3-8 and their families in developmentally-appropriate interactive arts activities. The project is designed to enable adults to use the activities to teach young African American children about their race and culture and build their positive racial identity.
