Multiracial America: A Resource Guide on the History and Literature of Interracial Issues
Multiracial America: A Resource Guide on the History and Literature of Interracial Issues (Paperback)
by Karen Downing (Author)
The number of interracial couples and marriages in America is growing rapidly, with profound consequences for society at large. In light of these changes, librarians should find Multiracial America a welcome addition to their collections. It offers a thorough look at the pressing issues facing interracial couples. Chapters cover such topics as appearance, fitting in, dating, families, and adoptions, all the while providing much needed information to couples struggling to deal with lingering problems of culture and race. The book also contains unique resources, including guidance on teaching a multiracial issues course (with a sample syllabus), help with searching for materials on the topic (which can be challenging, given the changing terminology and classifications), and a compilation of websites. Useful indexes by race and non-print media round out the material.
