Connections: Discussing the book, “Why Are All the Black Kids Sitting Together in the Cafeteria?"

Keuka College is preparing to welcome Beverly Tatum, author of “Why Are All the Black Kids Sitting Together in the Cafeteria?” Here’s how the college describes her upcoming presentation: “Dr. Tatum explores the ramifications of an education system that remains separate and very much unequal. Why are public schools still so overwhelmingly segregated? What does that mean for students of all backgrounds? And most importantly, what can be done about it?”

Our guests on Connections:

  • Aqua Porter, vice chair of the Keuka College Board of Trustees
  • Alan Ziegler, member of the Rochester Area Business Ethics Foundation, and member of Table 23
