"Can We Talk About Race?: And Other Conversations in an Era of School Resegregation" by Beverly Daniel Tatum, published in 2007, is a compelling exploration of America's shifting racial landscape through the lens of school resegregation. As a sequel to her influential work, "Why Are All the Black Kids Sitting Together in the Cafeteria?," Tatum, an acclaimed social justice leader and then-president of Spelman College, dives deep into the complexities of race in education. She discusses the critical need for African American representation in curricula and tackles how unexamined racial biases impact student achievement.
