Publisher's Summary

In her first book since that pathbreaking success, Tatum starts with a warning call about the increasing but underreported resegregation of America. Tatum sees our growing isolation from each other as deeply problematic, and she believes that schools can be key institutions for forging connections across the racial divide.

Critic Reviews

"A provocative and important book....What Tatum seeks to do above all is trigger sometimes challenging discussions about race, and infuse those discussions with a reality-based focus on how race affects us all. Her latest book does that beautifully, asking tough questions, and patiently, inclusively seeking answers." (Boston Globe)
"Another thoughtful, personal and provocative book that will encourage discussion about many of the difficult issues still surrounding race in America—in and out of the classroom." (Marian Wright Edelman, President, Children's Defense Fund)

An important dialogue

This conversation on race and education is, sadly, highly relevant to our 2017 environment. Tatum presents an informed and insightful perspective that's approachable and solution-oriented. A must-read for those interested in addressing inequalities, especially in education.
