NEW BOOK AND NEW LOCATION!
Join us for a discussion of Beverly Tatum, PhD.'s book, Why are all the Black Kids Sitting Together in the Cafeteria and Other Conversations about Race.
This thought-provoking, engaging book challenges readers to think about how they deal with racial differences as well as confronting one's unconscious biases. Sometimes people find it difficult to talk about one's racial identify, but Dr. Tatum insists that talking about it is essential to improving communication between races. CFPV is a safe place to have these discussions.In Tatum's book, she provides practical advice to talking your children about race as well as tips on embracing a cross culture dialogue.
