Dr. LaWonda Smith recently attended a conversation by Dr. Beverly Tatum, where she shared about her experiences as an African American female growing up in the Brown vs. the Board of Education era, being the President of an historically black women’s college, Spellman College, and she discussed poignant elements of her book, “Why Are All the Black Kids Sitting Together in the Cafeteria? And Other Conversations About Race.” Dr. Tatum is a renowned authority on the psychology of race, and Dr. Smith said that Tatum’s discussion about our racial identities is essential if we are serious about enabling communication across racial divides and advancing our mission to becoming an Antiracist Multicultural Organization.
