This dynamic workshop allows children to explore, understand, and celebrate our multi–hued world in a fun and educational environment while providing educators, caregivers, and advocates with practical tools and strategies to facilitate open, developmentally-appropriate conversations about phenotype, race, culture, and ethnicity.
