Professional Development Collection Read

Book Cover

This book actually took me a couple of months to read, and I thought I might put it down a couple of times. It is very long and very dense, difficult to read without totally being able to concentrate. Why Are All the Black Kids Sitting Together in the Cafeteria by Dr. Beverly Tatum will absolutely change your world view. Every page taught me new things about society and the struggles all minorities face living in the United States. Her personal stories and anecdotes kept me connected to the material, and the feeling that reading this was helping me evolve my worldview got me to the end of the book. If we feel passionate about working with the public, and especially disadvantaged groups, with compassion and empathy, this is a wonderful read.
