Raising an Anti Racist: Live Discussion and Q&A with Doyin Richards
Want to raise anti-racist children? Join us for a talk with author and speaker Doyin Richards to gain a better understanding of what it means to “do the work” both personally and with our children. We’ll create a safe, judgement-free space to ask questions, share struggles, and get guidance on this most essential and imperative aspect of parenting.
Doyin (pronounced “doe-ween”) Richards is a dynamic keynote speaker who inspires men to be open about mental health, end the “man up” culture, embrace diversity & inclusion (not just “tolerate” it) and be the best dads/parenting partners they can be.
Mainstream media values his message as he’s often called on to make appearances for NPR and HLN, and has been interviewed by the TODAY Show (and is a member of the TODAY Show’s Parenting Team), ABC News, Essence Magazine, Cosmopolitan, USA Today, CNN, Parents Magazine, Yahoo!, Upworthy, the New York Times, HuffPost, Sunrise Australia, and many more.
His message isn’t just for adults. Doyin authored two picture books for children published by Feiwel & Friends (an imprint of mega-publisher Macmillan). The first was I WONDER that recognizes the insecurities many new fathers have while raising their children, but also celebrates the fact that dads are never insecure when it comes to the love they have for their kiddos. His latest picture book, WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE? tackles the tough topic of introducing kids to positive race-relations without raising them to be “colorblind.” It was the #1 New Release in the ultra-competitive children’s “Explore The World” category on Amazon.
Through his books, keynote speeches, workshops, media appearances, and his new Just Stick To Parenting podcast, Doyin regularly demonstrates that he is a leader in the fields of mental health, diversity & inclusion, healthy masculinity, and fatherhood.
