Good, bad, ugly and illuminating—everyone has an opinion on race. As Biracial people continue trending, the discussion is no longer about a singular topic, but is more like playing a game of multi-level chess. And the co-authors of this anthology, like many, have a lot to say on this subject.
So much so they decided to write a book about what it means to be Biracial or multiracial in 2015 (and beyond). The project grew rapidly over and above anything they could ever have anticipated, and now their stories are joined by 22 others—each examining their common bond.
The anthology, Being Biracial: Where Our Secret Worlds Collide, is published by Coquí Press. It is a non-fiction book that cites the experiences of both mixed-race authors and those in interracial partnerships of all ages and backgrounds, from all over the world. It blends positivity, negativity, humor, pathos and realism in an enlightening exploration of what it means to be more than one ethnicity.
Being Biracial: Educators’ Guide, also published by Coquí Press, brings the topic to the classroom in a bold examination of race, including considered portraits of current gurus from the multiracial community and a section of questions relating directly to the essays within the original book, with ample space for note-taking. Students are encouraged to re-examine these issues in new and thought-provoking ways, giving all aspects of the subject some vital air time at a key point in their academic development.
