Blended Nation

Added to my Wish List:

Last May it was reported that "Multiracial Americans have become the fastest growing demographic group" in the nation.

Now comes this visually stunning book, Blended Nation: Portraits and Interviews of Mixed-Race America by husband and wife Mike Tauber and Pamela Singh, with an introduction by Rebecca Walker, and a foreword by Ann Curry.

What are you? On the 2000 U.S. Census, for the first time, multiracial individuals were allowed to indicate more than one race. Nearly seven million Americans did so. Blended Nation: Portraits and Interviews of Mixed Race America features individuals from this rapidly growing demographic of mixed race Americans across the country who identify as more than one race.

Through words and images, Mike Tauber and Pamela Singh explore the concept of race in America through the prism of the very personal experiences of people of mixed race heritage. Ann Curry writes in her Foreword, “As dad would say, ‘You are the best of both worlds,’ and so are the people you see on these pages, who cannot but strengthen America’s dream, as they are living proof it comes true.”
