Conversation About Race With Dr. Beverly Tatum

In May 2019, the Hampton Roads Community Foundation and its partner Virginia Humanities hosted a special Understanding Hampton Roads forum: A Conversation About Race With Dr. Beverly D. Tatum. It launched the new partnership between the Community Foundation and Virginia Humanities called Beneath the Surface: Race and the History of Race in South Hampton Roads.

Tatum, a psychologist and author of Why Are All the Black Kids Sitting Together in the Cafeteria? And Other Conversations about Race, will explore racial barriers that divide people. Dr. Tatum, president of Spelman College in Atlanta for 13 years, wrote her ground-breaking book in 1997 to start a conversation in the United States about race. She updated the book in 2017 with new research.

Tatum facilitated a discussion about the role race and its history play in Hampton Roads.
