It's Not All Black and White: Multiracial Youth Speak Out

Through poetry, interviews and short essays, mixed-race teens talk candidly about their anger and confusion when people persist in asking them what they are and make assumptions about their appearances. Their voices are strong, blunt, sad, defiant or affectionate, and wholly authentic.

An important book for readers who are unaware of their own prejudices.
