As a white woman, I never felt lost in this book. Tatum assumes almost no prior knowledge about race in the U.S., and walks the reader through clear explanations of how race and identity intertwine in the U.S. Though Tatum organizes her arguments to be understandable to just about anyone, I believe her analysis is helpful for just about anyone in the process of sorting out how race factors into her identity.
My one criticism is that the book doesn’t devote much time to racial identity development for latinos, first people, and asian pacific americans. Tatum has clearly devoted most of her research to studying racial development among white and black people in the U.S., and I wish she were more explicit about this. The book is most helpful for white, black, and biracial (black+white) people in the U.S.
I purchased this book as it was suggested in one of my courses on group dynamics and I am absolutely glad I did. I feel the book is straightforward in getting to the heart of issues. The author does not shy away from putting in the perspectives of black and white men and women who have taken her classes along with the questions they have that stem from their own curiosity and the private conversations that we (if you are black or white) may not get to hear if we aren't in that circle. I am a black male and while that may seem like I come with a bias already, I am learning more about group dynamics and reasons for searching out people who can identify with you lived experience(s).
I would suggest anyone read this book. I have not been disappointed yet.
