By Kip Fulbeck
From beloved writer and artist Kip Fulbeck, author and curator of Part Asian, 100% Hapa, this timely collection of portraits celebrates the faces and voices of mixed-race children. The book accompanies the exhibition opening at the National Museum on March 20, 2010. This is a special Museum edition of the book available only through the Museum Store.
At a time when 7 million people in the U.S. alone identify as belonging to more than one race, interest in issues of multiracial identity is rapidly growing. Overflowing with uplifting elements—including charming images, handwritten statements from the children, first-person text from their parents, a foreword by Dr. Maya Soetoro-Ng (President Obama's sister), and an afterword by international star Cher (who is part Cherokee)—this volume is an inspiring vision of the future.
