Book Description: 

In this book, Tatum examines some of the most salient issues in American education and race relations:

  • How unexamined racial attitudes can negatively affect minority-student achievement.
  • The need of African American students to see themselves reflected in curricula and institutions.
  • The possibilities — and complications — of intimate crossracial friendships.
  • Tatum approaches all these topics with the blend of analysis and storytelling that make her one of our most persuasive and engaging commentators on race.
