Mixed race

The many faces of the multiracial experience.

On Wednesday, January 20 at 19:30 GMT:

“What are you?” is an often used opening question that doesn’t always have a short and simple answer. For people with more than one racial background, identity is a lot more than one word; it’s a sentence, a paragraph or a lived experience. As we become a more and more mixed race population world over, racial identity is also becoming more fluid. On the next Stream we’ll speak to biracial and multiracial people about their mixed race journey. Join us with your questions and comments at 19:30 GMT.
