Summary
For more than two million American children of interracial background, questions of ethnicity and cultural identity are not easily answered. Barbara C. Cruz details the history of interracial marriages and children in the United States. She explores the struggles that mixed-race teens have endured, such as being alienated from nearly every race group and feeling pressure to choose only one race or ethnicity. Cruz provides readers with the resources they need to cope with these issues on their own, from inspiring biographies of well-known personalities to organizations and Web sites dedicated to promoting multiethnic and multicultural understanding.
