Continue the conversation with Dedicated to the Dream

Saturday, January 21 from 3:30 p.m. to 6 p.m. and Tuesday, February 7 from 5:30 p.m. to 8 p.m.

 Conversations about race and justice aren’t over after MLK Day – and they can be especially tough to explain to kids. But when adults stay silent, children make their own meaning. That’s why staff at Evanston Public Library, in collaboration with artist, illustrator and dollmaker Cozbi A. Cabrera, developed Dedicated to the Dream, a series of fun, creative, kid-friendly workshops that affirm all shades of skin, help kids explore their cultural and racial identities, teach accurate history, and give kids a space to talk about what they’re learning and how they feel. Now in its second year, Dedicated to the Dream offers multiple formats, from in-person kid-friendly workshops to small groups and DIY home activities so busy families can participate. The first in-person Getting Started Workshops are Saturday, Jan. 21, from 3:30 p.m. to 6 p.m., and Tuesday, Feb. 7, from 5:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. Learn more and register.
