Beverly Daniel Tatum Ph.D.

Color Blind or Color Inclusive?
Raising Culturally Competent Children in the 21st Century

In a time when racial violence and police brutality continue to dominate news headlines, having meaningful conversations about race with our children is more important than ever. But how? Beverly Daniel Tatum, a renowned authority on the psychology of racism, asserts that we do not know how to talk about our racial differences: whites are afraid of using the wrong words and being perceived as “racist”, while parents of color are afraid of exposing their children to painful racial realities too soon. Using real-life examples and the latest research, Tatum will present strong evidence that straight talk about our racial identities–whatever they may be–is essential if we are serious about facilitating communication across racial and ethnic divides.

Dr. Beverly Daniel Tatum served as president of Spelman College from 2002-2015 and is the author of Can We Talk About Race? And Other Conversations in an Era of School Resegregation (2007), “Why Are All the Black Kids Sitting Together in the Cafeteria?” and Other Conversations about Race (1997), and Assimilation Blues: Black Families in a White Community (1987). She holds a B.A. degree in psychology from Wesleyan University, and an M.A. and Ph.D. in clinical psychology from University of Michigan as well as an M.A. in Religious Studies from Hartford Seminary.
