NPR Podcast


Here's a podcast from last month that NPR recently posted on biracial children. Michel Martin interviewed me on my experiences and Black, White and Jewish and we also talked about Mixed, the anthology I just wrote the Foreword to, and, of course, Baby Love. Hopefully, this Mocha Moms podcast will become a regular NPR segment.

Take a listen and let me know what you think. I'd love to hear from other mothers exploring these issues.

my granddaughter is 3rd generation multiracial on *both* sides of her family. she is black, white and japanese... which means she could also wear a BWJ t-shirt.... if that would not offend the author?!

I did a multiracial video project last semester for my visual anthropology class and interviewed 16 kids from the ages of 4 yrs old to 24 yrs old about being multiracial; when they realized (or not realized) that they were mulitracial, obstacles they dealt with and if and how they came to terms with it. most of my interviews coincided with the reseach I read from organizations like Happa, etc.

I will have to show you her pic at the NYC book signing...

BWJ--that's fabulous. Can't wait to see pics! Also launching soon on the site: a place for people to post things like your multiracial video and other work that relates...keep in touch and come say hi in NYC.

I am not sure if you remember me: my name is Chris MacDonald-Dennis and I am the director of multicultural affairs at Bryn Mawr. You spoke here last year for Black History Month. My partner Frederic and I still talk about how much we enjoyed meeting you and listening to your sage advice.

I am looking forward to the release of your new book and hope you will be coming through Philly. And a new anthology on the mixed experience-I have to pick that one up!

I hope you are well and do hope our paths will cross again one day.
