Multiracial Heritage Week Family

Beth McNally Our family had the great fortune to become interracial when my daughter married her now former spouse several years ago.  I was ecstatic to become the grandmother (and Nana) to Campbell in 2012 and am lucky enough to live in the same town as he and his parents.  Campbell was the first (and remains the only) grandchild in our family and is, quite simply, adored.  When my daughter was pregnant and I began the grandmother-to-be buying spree, I got my first inkling that my worldview was going to [...]

Another Project RACE Family!

The Brock Family I was born and raised in the deep south. There's a lot to be thankful for in my sleepy small town. You won't find tea any sweeter than ours, and there are never any traffic jams. But as illuminated by recent events, like Ahmuad Arbery's murder, we've still got a lot of work to do down south to achieve equality and justice for people of color. My parents and I have been turned away from churches. Sometimes people don't want to sit by us in restaurants. I've [...]

Madeyln Rempel's Family   Multiracial Heritage Week has finally arrived!  This time last year I spent the week highlighting and celebrating different multiracial personalities that have made a positive difference in our world.  Unfortunately this year, my family and the rest of the world mourn the lives that have been lost at the hands of injustice.  Once again we are  reminded of the long history of disparities that the African American community has faced over the last four centuries.  I always hear my parents say “when one part hurts we [...]

Important Information

How to be counted as multiracial on the 2020 Census. We have been advised that another multiracial organization is putting out incorrect information about counting as multiracial on the 2020 Census when you are part Hispanic. They are saying that you can check Hispanic under the ethnicity question, check a race under the race question, and then write in “multiracial” under some other race. That will NOT get you counted as multiracial! You must check two or more races under the race question to be counted as “two or more [...]

Multiracial Heritage Week Families

Matheson Bossick's Family This year’s Multiracial Heritage week has come during the greatest social unrest in recent memory. With everything going on in the world today, we hope that you are staying safe and healthy during these uncertain times. While it is important to keep these events in mind, our focus now shifts to what makes us, as multiracial people, so unique and special. My mother who is mainly Caucasian was born in Tennessee in the early 80’s. Although I am biologically half-Caucasian, I have always felt a strong presence [...]

The Wooten Family   As sad times surround us everywhere due to racial injustice, celebrating Multiracial Heritage Week with families all around us seems to come at just the right time. My family consists of five, which includes our dog Soleil. Of my sister and I, I am the youngest. My Caucasian father was born and raised in Kansas City, Missouri, in 1973, in an all-White suburban area. It was very rare for my father to interact with people of color; especially African Americans. The most interaction he had with [...]

Multiracial Heritage Week is upon us! We hope you enjoy meeting some of leadership families. First up, the Baldwins! It is sad to say that this Multiracial Heritage week comes in a time of greater racial unrest than any of the past six. Nonetheless, this week is one focused on celebrating our heritage and being proud of what makes us who we are. I’m the youngest of three children. My black father was born in Houston in 1960 and remembers, as a young boy, seeing the anguish in his family [...]

Today is the day we typically begin celebrating Multiracial Heritage Week.   Sadly, many among our community do not feel like celebrating.   As we at Project RACE enter our seventh annual Multiracial Heritage Week, we find ourselves and our world in incredibly difficult times. We are a nation in mourning. We are mourning many things and much of the anguish is centered around ongoing racial injustice and our nation’s history of racism.   As multiracial people, we feel that pain deeply and personally. And yet we will not allow [...]
