MRKC Book Club Reflections on Mixed: Multiracial college students tell their life stories
The following paragraphs will consist of my thoughts and reflections on various sections of the book: Mixed: Multiracial college students tell their life stories
Book Review - Mixed
I read the entire book, Mixed from cover to cover. My immediate thoughts while reading the book was how much I could relate to these students’ narratives being a biracial female myself. Specifically, I learned how disconnected some multiracial students can feel from their racial/ethnic identities, which is something I experienced during periods of my life.
Mixed College Students: WHO vs. WHAT
Over the past few weeks I have read Mixed: Multiracial College Students Tell Their Life Stories (2014) and was extremely pleased with the thought provoking and eye opening narratives that were shared by the many students included in this book. I decided to read this book as a means of furthering my understanding of identity and how students come to understand who they are, but specifically, for individuals who identify as multiracial.
