Live at 9: Self segregation, Code Crew Code School & smart food choices

Self segregation

Recent polls show our country is more racially polarized than ever, but are we doing it to ourselves? As one of the nation’s leading experts in the psychology of racism, Dr. Beverly Tatum of Spelman College examines the role of self segregation in society in her best-selling book “Why Are All the Black Kids Sitting Together in the Cafeteria?”

Code Crew Code School
