Multiracial/Multicultural Perspectives

September 2023

"What are you?" "Where are you from?" The experience of growing up with multiple identities is unique. In these books, protagonists born with a blend of racial and cultural backgrounds grapple with racism, colorism, appreciating both sides of their heritage, resembling one side of the family more than the other, passing for one identity over the other, and more. Explore the complexities of race, ethnicity, culture, and identity through books that touch on the variety of experiences of multiracial families and individuals.
