Dr. Tatum is a psychologist, scholar and researcher who served as president of Spelman College for thirteen years. She has met with Gordon students, faculty and parents several times over the past twenty years, and spoke at Gordon as part of the school’s centennial celebrations in 2010. An updated twentieth-anniversary edition of her classic 1997 book “Why Are All the Black Kids Sitting Together in the Cafeteria?” And Other Conversations About Race is being published in September.
 
Dr. Tatum’s engagement with Gordon goes back to 1998 as Gordon began its commitment to advancing a racially diverse community. In that year, Ralph Wales invited her to come to speak to the independent school community in Rhode Island. 

Dr. Tatum’s recent presentation at the TedX conference at Stanford University can be seen online.
 
She will be presenting Thursday, November 9th, at 6:30pm.
 
This event is free and open to the public.
