Why Are All The Black Kids Sitting Together In The Cafeteria?

Book Cover - Why are All the Black Kids Sitting Together in the Cafeteria

Walk into any racially mixed high school and you will see Black, White, and Latino youth clustered in their own groups. Is this self-segregation a problem to address or a coping strategy? Beverly Daniel Tatum, a renowned authority on the psychology of racism, argues that straight talk about our racial identities is essential if we are serious about enabling communication across racial and ethnic divides. These topics have only become more urgent as the national conversation about race is increasingly acrimonious. This fully revised twentieth anniversary edition is essential reading for anyone seeking to understand the dynamics of race in America.

Dr. Beverly Daniel Tatum's new book is Why Are All the Black Kids Sitting Together in the Cafeteria?: And Other Conversations About Race.
