Why Are All the Black Kids Sitting Together in the Cafeteria? And Other Conversations About Race
by Beverly Daniel Tatum, PhD Author
An in-depth exploration of racial identity and racism in the US, sparked by the question of the title: Is self-segregation a coping strategy, a point of pride, or a problem? Psychologist Beverly Tatum writes about her own experiences as a parent of racialized kids, the science of identity formation in early childhood development, best practices for parents and teachers, and a discussion of issues like classroom discrimination and affirmative action. This is vital reading, but not a 101 book for people new to the topic of examining and dismantling racism.
