Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In Can We Talk About Race? psychologist and educator Beverly Daniel Tatum, one of our leading commentators on race and schools, analyzes some of the most resonant issues in American education and race relations.

"A provocative and important book . . . What Tatum seeks to do above all is trigger sometimes challenging discussions about race, and infuse those discussions with a reality-based focus on how race affects us all. Her latest book does that beautifully, asking tough questions, and patiently, inclusively seeking answers." —Chuck Leddy, Boston Globe

"Another thoughtful, personal and provocative book that will encourage discussion about many of the difficult issues still surrounding race in America—in and out of the classroom." —Marian Wright Edelman, president, Children's Defense Fund

Synopsis:

The bestselling author of "Why Are All the Black Kids Sitting Together in the Cafeteria?" now offers a warning call about the increasing but underreported resegregation of America, and examines some of the most resonant issues in education and race relations. (African-American Studies)Beacon Press
