Psychologist and former president of Spelman College, Dr. Beverly Daniel Tatum, wrote the first edition of this watershed book in 1997, a foundational examination of race, racism, and racial identity. In her book, Why Are All the Black Kids Sitting Together in the Cafeteria?, Dr. Tatum expresses a definition of racism that focuses less on personal, individual prejudices and more on societal and institutional power.

You are hereby cordially invited to read and discuss this book with us, both online and in person, as we discuss all kinds of ideas from this groundbreaking work.

You can join our online book discussion now & we’ll begin facilitating this discussion in mid-May: https://bit.ly/2w7pIfv

Then we'll meet in person on Sunday, June 24th at the Plaza branch of the KC Public Library from 3:30 — 5:00 pm in their large meeting room.

Let us know if you need help with obtaining a copy of the book. An audio version is also available: https://audiobooks.com/audiobook/why-are-all-the-black-kids-sitting-together-in-the-cafeteria-and-other-conversations-about-race/301962

We'll have a child care corner with adult supervision and toys. Let us know if you need child care and for how many children.
