Race and Culture Series
HDFS sponsors a twice a year Race and Culture series that is open to the university and local community. We feature pertinent faculty research, workshops and trainings on issues such as implicit bias and micro-aggressions, and other such topics and relevant movie screenings and discussions. The goal of this series is to stimulate, facilitate and sustain discussions around critical issues pertaining to race, culture and diversity.
The Fall 2022 Race and Culture Series; Exploring the Last 100 Years of Research on Black Families, will take place on Wednesday, November 2nd from 1:00 – 2:30 pm. UD faculty, students, staff and the community are invited to attend this event in-person, in 220 Alison Hall, or virtually.
For this presentation, Chrishana M. Lloyd, Ph.D., a Research Scholar in the Early Childhood Development area at Child Trends, will discuss family science and scholars from other disciplines have been conducting research on and about Black families for over 100 years. This presentation will utilize a historical lens and racial equity framing to provide a decade-by-decade overview of research on Black families starting from 1920 and ending in 2020. Key themes, identification of areas of in-depth and limited knowledge, and suggestions for additional questions and methods for future research will be shared.
