Portraits of Multiracial Kids.
Photographs by Kip Fulbeck.
Chronicle Books, San Francisco, 2010. 264 pp., Illustrated throughout,
From beloved writer and artist Kip Fulbeck, author of Part Asian, 100 Hapa, this timely collection of portraits celebrates the faces and voices of mixed-race children. 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.
