WHY ARE ALL THE BLACK KIDS SITTING TOGETHER IN THE CAFETERIA?
Beverly Daniel Tatum, 1997
(Note: This is a second attempt at a discussion on this book)
Walk into any racially mixed high school and you will see Black, White, and Latino
students clustered in their own groups. Is this self-segregation a problem to address or a coping strategy ?
Daniels gives us straight talk about our racial identities if we are to seriously communicate across racial and ethnic divides. The topic of racial identity is one we all must confront and honestly communicate about if we are to bring about change.
An unusually sensitive work about the racial barriers that still divide us in so many areas of life. —- Jonathan Kozol
