“A rich account of the complexities of racially classifying mixed-race children. Song strikes at the heart of where mixed-race identity and its variants - such as to identify as White or non-White - are formed. By following parents’ accounts, this innovative and important book helps us understand an important dimension of a world of increasing ethnoracial diversity.”
—Edward E. Telles, Author of Pigmentocracies: Ethnicity, Race, and Color in Latin America
“A novel and searching look at how mixed race people contemplate and confront parenthood. Though their circumstances may seem unique, Song compellingly shows how their experiences and reflections speak volumes about how race is more widely understood. Questions of appearance, community, racism, and ancestry may take on particular forms for multiracial parents, but their power and poignancy clearly derive from the weight they hold for all of us.”
—Ann Morning, Author of The Nature of Race: How Scientists Think and Teach about Human Difference
“An insightful study that illuminates a neglected group: multiracial parents who are raising children. We learn how second-generation multiracials conceptualize and negotiate the meaning of race, racism, and the identity formation of their children.”
—France Winddance Twine, Author of A White Side of Black Britain: Interracial Intimacy and Racial Literacy
