In the last decade there has been a massive shift in America’s racial makeup with the majority of the current 5-and-under age population being children of color. In the United States, Asian and multiracial are the fastest growing self-identified groups. Yet despite surging numbers and living in a still highly racialized society, young multiracial Asian children are vastly underrepresented in writings on race.
Raising Mixed Race: Multiracial Asian Children in a Post-Racial World, which releases December 11, is drawn from extensive research and interviews with 68 parents of multiracial children. It is the first to examine the complex task of supporting children who are “two or more races” and Asian while living amongst “post-racial” ideologies.
A virtual release party happens Friday, December 11 from 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Just show up on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/raisingmixedrace/. Giveaways include four signed copies of Raising Mixed Race plus other donations by other authors, artists, and filmmakers—all by/about mixed race Asians.
