Parents, educators, and others have turned to Beverly Daniel Tatum’s bestselling book for over two decades to better understand the dynamics of race in America. Those conversations continue to be critically important today, so on June 11 #NACACreads will discuss the new edition of Why Are All the Black Kids Sitting Together in the Cafeteria?
Tatum, president emerita of Spelman College (GA), will answer your questions about her recently revised book as we explore how racism continues to affect students as they make their way to and through college.
The chat kicks off on Twitter at 9 p.m.
“We don’t talk about race in America, but we must start if we are going to heal this broken country,” bestselling author Jodi Picoult wrote in praise of the updated edition. “…Tatum’s book is exactly the conversation opener we should be using.”
