The Census Bureau projects that the multiracial population will triple by the year 2060. The birth rate for mixed race babies is growing faster than any other population in the United States, and almost half of multiracial Americans are under 18 years (compared to about 23% overall). But very little research has been done on the experiences of growing up "mixed", or parenting mixed kids.

At this special event, Sharon H. Chang, author of the recently published Raising Mixed Race: Multiracial Asian Children in a Post-Racial World will be discussing the findings of her research, as well as her own experience as a mixed race woman married to a mixed race man, parenting a young son.  She will be joined by a panel of parents of multiracial/multiethnic children who will discuss their own experiences, questions, and observations.

This event is free with admission to the museum (non-members $5, students and seniors over age 65 $3, JAMsj members and children under 12 free)
