The United States is more segregated than it was in the 1980s. Black and Latinx students are more likely to attend so-called majority-minority schools where 60 percent or more of students live in poverty.
Psychologist Beverly Tatum asks, what difference does it make? What are the implications of hypersegregated communities? Why have desegregation efforts failed? We’ll have a conversation with Dr. Tatum about her revised and updated book, Why are all the Black Kids Sitting Together in the Cafeteria? And Other Conversations About Race.
