Building E51, Wong Auditorium, E51-115
70 MEMORIAL DR, Cambridge, MA 02142
As a nation, are we having honest conversations about race and racism? 22 years ago, Dr. Beverly Daniel Tatum published her seminal work, Why Are All the Black Kids Sitting Together in the Cafeteria? In a conversation anchored in the 20th anniversary of the publication of her book, Tatum will discuss the current state of race relations in the U.S. Is it better or worse than 20 years ago? What can we, as an institution and a nation, do to create a more equitable and inclusive Institute and society? Melissa Nobles, Kenan Sahin Dean of the School of Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences, will serve as moderator.
In addition to the above author event, we invite you to participate in MIT Reads. During this spring semester, MIT Reads (sponsored by the MIT Libraries and the MIT Press Bookstore), is hosting community discussions on Why Are All the Black Kids Sitting Together in the Cafeteria? Visit the MIT Reads website for more information, including how to get a copy of the book.
