Dr. Beverly Tatum
Why Are All the Black Kids Sitting Together in the Cafeteria?
Sunday, December 3, 2017, 2:00PM
Westside School (West Seattle)

SOLD OUT. There will be a standby line at the door. This is the first of two events Dr. Beverly Tatum will participate in. The second is a sold out event at 6pm.


Walk into any high school cafeteria and you will see Black, White, and Latino youth clustered into their own groups. Is this self-segregation a problem we should try to fix or a coping strategy we should support? Dr. Beverly Tatum, renowned authority on the psychology of race, helps us begin this dialogue with her classic book Why Are All the Black Kids Sitting Together in the Cafeteria: And Other Conversations About Race. In its new 20th edition, Tatum argues that forthright discussion about our racial identities is essential if we are serious about enabling communication across racial and ethnic divides. Join us and Tatum to become a part of this critical discussion to help confront these and other questions about race.

Presented by Town Hall Seattle as part of the Civics series.
