Lewis 8th floor hallway


Aliyah Hill recommends “Why are all the black kids sitting together in the cafeteria?” by Beverly Daniel Tatum.


To celebrate black history month our committee invites you to read “Why are all the black kids sitting together in the cafeteria?”. The book focuses on the racial barriers that still divide us. The book discusses self-selected segregation between students and the benefits of doing so as well as racism and human behavior. The novel dives into race, continuing the conversation and the importance of discussing white identity when discussing black identity.
