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.

I did not like the one sided political slant that led up to the book. I felt it was decisive and it made me question all the stats that were used because stats can be used to back anything in a very one sided way. I almost did not continue listening because so much hate filled politics. But I listen while I walk or bike so I kept listening. The actual book is excellent and will help me very much to be a better high school math teacher. john
