Praise

“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 touch questions, and patiently, inclusively seeking answers.”—Boston Globe

“Ten years ago, Tatum’s book asked the question, ‘Why Are All the Black Kids Sitting Together in the Cafeteria?‘ Her latest book follows up with a broader question about the nation’s readiness to talk honestly about the forces that continue to make race such a thorny issue . . . A probing and ambitious start to a series of books to prod national discussion on issues of race, education, and democracy.”—Vanessa Bush, Booklist

“Four research-rich, concisely written essays on race and education, including examinations of the ‘resegregation of our schools,’ the need for educational curricula and staff that respect the diverse communities they serve, [and] the challenges of interracial friendships . . . 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
