Understanding Color-Blind v. Color-Conscious Socialization of Racial Attitudes in Families

You are here

Lead Mentor: Debbie Laible

 

This project will uncover how and why some families take a more proactive “color conscious” approach to racial socialization and others take a color blind approach. Students participating in this project will survey white parents about their approach to socializing compassion, humanitarian values and racial attitudes. The students will explore the literature to discover the characteristics of parents that lead to color-conscious white parents.
