What Are You? A Dialogue on Mixed Race



Featured in the 2009 Mixed Roots Film & Literary Festival in downtown Los Angeles

The multiracial population may be small compared to the total population of the country, but they're springing up among the nation's youth. A once impossible thought is now playing a role in how people see race and racism, whether or not they're multiracial.

In this documentary, seven women share their experiences and the results highlight how complex the issue is as some deal with the struggle to be accepted by people who identify with one race while others have no trouble at all. You'll also hear how mixed celebrities affect the discourse.

Update: In the "Story Time" segment, Natalie's discussion on international experience reflected mostly on Mexico; there are complex issues with race in the Dominican Republic where she studied abroad.
