The experiences and voices of multiracial individuals are challenging current categories of race, profoundly altering the meaning of racial identity and in the process changing the cultural fabric of the nation. Exploring this new reality, the authors of ""Mixed Messages"" examine what we know about multiracial identities - and the implications of those identities for fundamental issues of justice and equality.
