Cherry Vasquez and Family As a multiracial family - Roy, Kelly and I just live our lives. Though we realize we’re a multiracial family, it’s never pointed out. We’ve never really had to deal with issues until it was time for Kelly to begin elementary school. As parents, we dreaded each year having to fill out the ‘first day of school’ forms. In these instances, we almost always selected Roy’s race on paper which is White because it’s noted on his birth certificate (something I'll never understand except for his [...]

Multiracial Heritage Week a Great Success!

Susan Graham I hope you enjoyed our showcasing some of our Project RACE Leadership families during Multiracial Heritage Week. I am being told by our Project RACE teens that it’s my turn! I was born in Detroit and went through all of my schooling in Michigan. I pursued careers in public relations, writing, industrial real estate, telecommunications, and finance. I married a black husband in 1981 and we had two multiracial children. I now have two grandchildren whom I spoil and adore. I divorced and re-married in 2005 to my [...]

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 [...]

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

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 [...]

Multiracial Heritage Week

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 [...]

Thank you!

  We just want to thank everyone who made national Multiracial Heritage Week such a great success this year. We received written acknowledgment from 17 states and 4 mayors of large cities. Yes! We also had numerous new members sign up for membership and asking to be placed on our mailing list. The media attention has been great, with television, radio, and podcasts. If you missed Karson Baldwin, Project RACE Teen President on WKYC, you can catch it here: Project RACE celebrates being multiracial throughout the year, but our [...]
