Join Kehinde Andrews, Professor of Black Studies at Birmingham City University, as he sits down with author Beverly Daniel Tatum, to discuss her book, “Why Are All the Black Kids Sitting Together in the Cafeteria?”, which is being published in the UK for the first time.

A renowned Professor of Psychology, Beverly Daniel Tatum shows us how racial identity develops, from very young children all the way to adulthood, in black families, white families, and mixed race families, and helps us understand what we can do to break the silence, have better conversations with our children and with each other about race, and build a better world.

Originally published in 1998 in America, with a revised version published in 2017, the book is being published in the UK for the first time by Penguin Books. To commemorate this, Professor Kehinde Andrews, course leader for Europe’s first undergraduate Black Studies degree and the new MA Black Studies course at Birmingham City University, will interview Beverly about the book's journey over the past 23 years while also putting your questions to her in a live Q and A.
