It is expected that by 2044, the United States will become a majority-minority society, with Non-Hispanic Whites comprising less than half of the U.S. population. Children under the age of 18 will be majority-minority in 2020. As the nation prepares for this transition, the Society for Research in Child Development (SRCD) has launched an annual Lecture Series entitled Child Development in a Diverse Majority Society. SRCD’s 2019 recorded lecture was presented by Dr. Emilie Smith at the University of Georgia.

Introduction by:

  • Laura L. Namy, Ph.D., Executive Director, Society for Research in Child Development
