Beverly Daniel Tatum

Beacon Press

160 pages. $22.95.

Tatum, president of historically black Spelman College in Atlanta, presents four essays that get at one central question: Are we able to foster acceptable and productive discussions of race in the current education climate? She suggests that trends toward “resegregation” of schools and a national reticence to even broach the subject of race will continue to make it difficult for youth to forge relationships with people of other races, even as the nation becomes increasingly nonwhite.
