When Tatum became president of Spelman College 13 years ago, she set the expectation that the institution would be renowned as a top liberal arts college in the country – “a place where young women of African descent could say, ‘This place was built for me and it is nothing less than the best!’”

Her best-selling titles include Can We Talk About Race? And Other Conversations in an Era of School Resegregation (2007) and Why Are All the Black Kids Sitting Together in the Cafeteria? And Other Conversations About Race (1997). She is also the author of Assimilation Blues: Black Families in a White Community (1987).
