A Conversation About Race with Dr. Beverly Daniel Tatum

Where are we as a nation in having honest conversations about race and racism?

22 years ago, the seminal work of Dr. Beverly Daniel Tatum, Why Are All the Black Kids Sitting Together in the Cafeteria? was published. On Thursday, April 18, 2019, in a conversation anchored in the 20th anniversary of her book released in 2017, Dr. Beverly Daniel Tatum will discuss the current state of race relations in the nation. Is it better or worse than it was 20 years ago? What can we, as an institution and a nation, do to create a more equitable Institute and society?

Date: Thursday, April 18, 2019
Time: 4-6pm
Location: E51-115 (Wong Auditorium).

In addition to the above author event, we invite you to participate in MIT Reads.
