Publisher's Summary

The classic, best-selling 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 listening for anyone seeking to understand the dynamics of race in America.

It’s time to change perspective

I am so glad that I listen to this book. As a white female who is lived 60 years, I know I’ve had struggles. But this book showed me that my struggles also came with privilege. My heart is open to hear the stories of those less fortunate. And to stand up for those being discriminated against every time the opportunity shows up.

I had read parts of the original but the twentieth anniversary addition was particularly powerful. Me and my wife are look at fostering and there is a good chance that kids place with us will have a different race than our selves, this book was incredible helpful tool, preparing us to promote a positive racial identity for kids coming into our home irrespective of their race
