Beginning Bias Early
How young were you when you first began to notice that some people looked different than you?
New research shows children as young as age 7 may predict differences about people based on race.
We examine those findings and their implications. Including some possibilities for combating early prejudice.
Note: For information on how you and your children can participate in UVa’s research, see the Child Development Labs website. Additional information available on the Labs’ Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/childdevelopmentlabs .
