Exercise 8-9: How would psychologist Beverly Tatum interpret the racial identity development of a student in the Skin Deep video? What stage (or stages) would she place them in, and why? Support your reasoning with at least two direct quotes: one from video dialogue (cite with a timestamp), and another from Tatum’s book. Use any standard academic citation format. Hint: see these Zotero-friendly links to  Tatum’s book and to the video.
