Helping Black children understand race
and embrace their ethnicity and heritage
Who we Are
Through a blend of interactive professional development for educators, classes with parents, dynamic arts festivals, and community engagement, the P.R.I.D.E. program fosters positive racial identity in Black children, aged 3 to 8, in the city of Pittsburgh.
The P.R.I.D.E. Program was born out of the 2016 study entitled “Positive Racial identity Development in Early Education: Understanding P.R.I.D.E. in Pittsburgh.” The report details the scholarship supporting positive racial identity. But that’s just where our research began. We have since conducted our own research while continually learning and incorporating new research into our work.
