Dr. Beverly Daniel Tatum, President Emerita of Spelman College and author of the critically acclaimed book, Why Are All the Black Kids Sitting Together in the Cafeteria? And Other Conversations about Race (1997), is a nationally recognized authority on racial issues and the psychology of racism in America. She argues that straight talk about our racial identities is essential to enable communication across racial and ethnic divides.

Dr. Tatum explains why faculty, staff and students need to explore racial stereotypes and continue cross-racial dialogue, and shares activities she has utilized to engage others in understanding their racial identity.
