Staff Reviews


If you are looking for a psychological and intelligent book that delves into the mindset of growing up as a Black individual in America, then this is the book for you. Meant to be read with a curious and open mind, Tatum beautifully explains how racism has been buried under the surface for many White Americans who were taught that indifference is safer than standing up against racism. Providing numerous insightful responses to questions about race, Tatum's classic book is not to be missed when learning how to be an anti-racist in today's world. — Laura Knapp

Description


The classic, bestselling book on the psychology of racism -- now fully revised and updated

Walk into any racially mixed high school and you will see Black, White, and Latino youth clustered in their own groups. Is this self-segregation a problem to address or a coping strategy? Beverly Daniel Tatum, a renowned authority on the psychology of racism, argues that straight talk about our racial identities is essential if we are serious about enabling communication across racial and ethnic divides. These topics have only become more urgent as the national conversation about race is increasingly acrimonious. This fully revised edition is essential reading for anyone seeking to understand the dynamics of race in America.
