What Are You?: Voices of Mixed-Race Young People
Pearl Fuyo Gaskins
Macmillan, Jun 15, 1999 - Juvenile Nonfiction - 273 pages
In the past three decades, the number of interracial marriages in the United States has increased by more than 800 percent. Now over four million children and teenagers do not identify themselves as being just one race or another.
Here is a book that allows these young people to speak in their own voices about their own lives.
What Are You? is based on the interviews the author has made over the past two years with mixed-race young people around the country. These fresh voices explore issues and topics such as dating, families, and the double prejudice and double insight that come from being mixed, but not mixed-up.
