Thurgood Marshall and Two Rabbits

The recent anniversary of Brown v Board is a moment to pause and reflect on the impact that discrimination and stigma has on children. Despite the progress that has been made since 1954, systemic racism still effects the lives of young children around the world. At Two Rabbits, we measure cultural pride with methods inspired by Thurgood Marshall’s evidence in the Brown v Board case, specifically the famous doll experiment, which demonstrated the “stamp of inferiority” caused by segregation placed and internalized by black children. Below you can see one of our students taking part in a similar assessment, choosing his preferred photo from choices including Baka and non-Baka settings. Like Marshall, we hope to use this data to bring the Baka story to light, and target our efforts to provide quality preschool education and fight for social justice.
