Childhood can look radically different depending on your race, which impacts whether a child gets access to the things that are needed to live a healthy, joyful life. Play is the true work of childhood. Whether on the playground, in the classroom, at home or in the community, playing allows children and youth to explore their world, take risks, make mistakes and feel achievement. Through play, children develop critical social and cognitive skills, mature emotionally and gain confidence in themselves and their connection to community.
Join Points of Light in a discussion led by KABOOM! and Morehouse College that defines what playspace inequity is, where it’s happening, and how communities are coming together to remove barriers and create access to quality spaces to play, learn and thrive.
