book - Can We Talk about Race?
Can We Talk about Race? And Other Conversations in an Era of School Resegregation
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.
