Blurring the Color Line: Racial Identity of People in Interracial Families

People often categorize themselves and others into distinct racial groups, yet members of interracial families manage to blur the color line that is so deeply entrenched within our culture. A member of an interracial family herself, Sandy Nesbit Tracy interviewed 12 adults for a narrative study on racial identity of people in interracial families – spouses, partners, parents, children, siblings, etc. Sandy will discuss the concept of race as a social construct and a daily reality, and share stories of study participants.

This event is free and open to the public.
