How can we get past our anxieties to talk about racial issues with our students? What can we do to bridge racial divides in our classrooms? Please join us for this special opportunity to engage in a conversational follow-up to the College of Education's convocation presentation on Friday morning with psychologist, educator, scholar and writer Dr. Beverly Daniel Tatum, President Emerita, Spelman College, and former acting president of Mount Holyoke College.

And Other Conversations About Race” (1997/2003), and “Can We Talk About Race?: And Other Conversations in an Era of School Resegregation” (2007).
