Unraveling Bias

In her new book Unraveling Bias: How Prejudice Has Shaped Children for Generations and Why It’s Time to Break the Cycle, Dr. Brown will uncover what scientists have learned about how children are impacted by biases because of their race and ethnicity, gender, gender identity, and sexual orientation, and explore how biased policies from the past and present (from segregating schools because of race to banning trans students from playing school sports) can be changed.
