Can We Talk about Race? An Interview with Beverly Daniel Tatum
Richardson, Joan
Phi Delta Kappan, v99 n3 p30-36 Nov 2017
Beverly Daniel Tatum, author of "Why Are All the Black Kids Sitting Together in the Cafeteria?", talks about race with "Kappan" editor-in-chief Joan Richardson. Tatum advises more conversations about race and racial identities as a way to bridge the divide between the races. Silence, she says, is not an effective strategy for improving relationships. Silence may actually harm children because, when parents and teachers avoid talking about race, others will fill the gap for them, often with misinformation or negative information.
