Black Parents with Black and Mixed Race Children (BPBMC) Project

Laura Evans, a Human Development and Family Studies graduate student in the School of Human Ecology and member of the CAFÉ  lab, is currently recruiting parents for a research study. Specifically, she is seeking parents who identify as Black or African American living in Southern Wisconsin with a Black or Multiracial child between the ages of 5-11. Participating parents will have a virtual interview with a Black-Biracial researcher about their parenting experiences. All participants who complete an interview will receive a $20 e-gift card.
