Decoding and Decolonizing Children’s Literature
28 August @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am
A workshop with Little Uprisings co-founder Tanya Nixon-Silberg exploring popular children’s book titles as critical texts — opportunities to notice, critically read, and disrupt dominant narratives with children around race, gender, ethnicity, LGBTQ identity, immigrant identity, and other marginalized identities.
Tanya (she/her) is a Black mother, educator, artist, and radical dreamer. Her work informs the intersection of all these identities. Called a “translator”, Tanya has the ability to distill concepts of racial justice to young children in ways that help them imagine and take back a world where with community, they have agency, and can take action for change and has been doing this work for over 7 years. Tanya’s life’s goal is to make sure that Black and Brown children recognize that racism is systemic; that educators not shy away from confronting systemic racism in the classroom and that engaging in this work collectively helps us to heal.
