The Arlington Reads Together (ART) keynote presentation with Dr. Beverly Daniel Tatum, captured in this compelling and timely video, is a must see! Dr. Tatum shared her lived experience and expertise on race and racism today in a conversation with Dr. Roderick MacNeal, Assistant Superintendent to the Arlington Schools, and with Q&A from Jillian Harvey, Arlington’s Director of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion.

A thought leader in higher education, Dr. Tatum is the author of the best-selling book selected for ART 2021,  Why Are All the Black Kids Sitting Together in the Cafeteria? And Other Conversations about Race. The Arlington Reads Together community read program launched in 2002 as a way of bringing the community together through literature. The goal is to address issues, understand differences and create connections through the shared experience of reading.
