Why Are All the Black Kids Sitting Together in the Cafeteria? by Beverly Daniel Tatum: Conversation Starters
Educator, Author, and Psychologist Dr. Beverly Tatum's book entitled Why Are All the Black Kids Sitting Together in the Cafeteria: And Other Conversations About Race talks about how different races cope when mixed with other races in a public setting. She talks about why most kids in school, especially in America, group themselves with people who have the same race as them. Tatum also encourages the readers to use their voices and speak out on the racism they encounter themselves or to anyone they know. Most of her books and journals are mainly about this topic and the psychological reason behind it. Even though the novel was published 23 years ago, it is still being used in schools to educate students to give awareness about racism.
Why Are All the Black Kids Sitting Together in the Cafeteria: And Other Conversations About Race is a National Bestseller and is considered a classic. Initially published in 1997, it has already been re-released multiple times. The latest version was released in 2017 for it's 20th anniversary, which contains an updated and revised edition. It has been more than two decades since its release, but it's still well-received by the public since the subject is still relevant up to this day.
