Kids on race

Nearly 60 years after American schools were desegregated by the landmark Brown v Board of Education ruling, and more than a year after the election of the country's first black President, white children have an overwhelming white bias, and black children also have a bias toward white according to a new study commissioned by CNN.

The study is a recreation of the famous Doll Test of the 1940s, which explored how African-American children interpret race, discrimination and stigma. CNN and a team of renowned child development psychologists, led by Professor Margaret Beale Spencer, designed and executed an updated version of the study to help answer one major question: where are we today?

 

CNN invites you to watch “Black or White: Kids on Race” and join the conversation on AC360 starting May 17th. Please share your thoughts on the new doll test, on race, our children and where we are today.
