Exploring the Experiences and Self-Labeling of Mixed-Race Individuals with Two Minority Parents
Talbot, Donna M.
New Directions for Student Services, n123 p23-31 2008
With increasing numbers of multiracial individuals and interracial relationships, the potential for rapid growth of this population on campus is unprecedented. Despite this emerging reality, the literature on mixed-race and multiracial persons is very limited, providing little guidance for student affairs educators. To address this need, the author presents preliminary findings from a study of the experiences and self-labeling of ten individuals who are biracial and whose parents identify themselves as monoracial members of minority groups. Implications for student affairs educators are shared.
