Episode Details

Original tape date: February 8, 2018.

First aired: February 23, 2018.

In the 1940's, Dr.'s Kenneth and Mamie Clark designed and conducted a series of experiments known to many of us as the "Clark Experiment", where they tested children's racial perceptions using identical dolls except for color.

Today, Dr. Beverly Daniel Tatum, Author and President Emeritus of Spelman College continues this discussion on race in her new book, "Why Are All the Black Kids Sitting Together in the Cafeteria?"

In this conversation with Carol Jenkins, Dr. Tatum points out the importance of conversation with children on race and references a time when her son was in school and another child asked him if he was black from drinking chocolate milk. She believes that many are reluctant to talk about issues of race, and that we must begin to consider the psychological effects of racial identity development.
