Review

Being Biracial: Where Our Secret Worlds Collide is the best of both worlds. It is not only academic, nor is it only commercial. Sarah Ratliff and Bryony Sutherland have indeed found a way to take a subject that will appeal to everyone, from interracial families, to the multiracial population, to non-fiction readers, and to academics. It is a book that needs to be read by anyone interested in diversity and the multiracial viewpoint.

The 24 people who write about their lives in Being Biracial are as varied as there are names for the multiracial crowd, which is getting larger every day. I was very surprised as I read about how much emphasis is placed on the physical traits of these people. I was delighted that there were no "poor multiracial me" stories, and that people came from everywhere with varied experiences, and that they all very clearly dealt with all of their racial combinations.

This is not only for the interracial family, the multiracial person, or the people who tell their stories. This book is for everyone who needs to understand more about race in the world today, and wouldn't that be all of us?

Our authors hail from a dozen countries spanning five continents, and encompass a wide range of racial and ethnic mixtures. Given the political climate of the day, our purpose in writing and publishing this book was to encourage people to challenge their assumptions when presented with race and ethnicity in combination.

We hope the stories within Being Biracial: Where Our Secret Worlds Collide will change your perspectives and open your eyes and hearts as they have ours.

Product Description

Good, bad, ugly and illuminating—everyone has an opinion on race. As biracial people continue trending, the discussion is no longer about a singular topic, but is more like playing a game of multi-level chess. The anthology, Being Biracial: Where Our Secret Worlds Collide, cites the experiences of twenty-four mixed-race authors and parents of multiracial children of all ages and backgrounds, from all over the world. It blends positivity, negativity, humor, pathos and realism in an enlightening exploration of what it means to be more than one ethnicity.

“Being Biracial: Where Our Secret Worlds Collide is the best of both worlds. It is not only academic, nor is it only commercial. Sarah Ratliff and Bryony Sutherland have indeed found a way to take a subject that will appeal to everyone, from interracial parents, to the multiracial population, to non-fiction readers, and to academics. It is a book that needs to be read by anyone interested in diversity and the multiracial viewpoint.” Susan Graham, President, Project RACE, Inc.
