From Embrace Race:
Roughly one in seven U.S. infants (14%) are multiracial or multiethnic (Pew, 2017), but what does it mean to be multiracial? It’s complicated! During this first webinar of a two part series on raising multiracial kids, our guests break down some of the complexities of identifying with more than one race, including the pivotal role caregivers and families play in shaping how multiracial children come to understand themselves and the world around them. This is especially complex in this historical moment as the United States is coming to terms with its own White supremacist roots.
Our guests will describe the challenges and strengths of identifying with more than one racial group, highlighting examples from recent research, and drawing from their own personal experiences as multiracial individuals and parents of multiracial children. As always we welcome your comments and questions!
