It's finally going to happen. My next book entitled, "The New Face of America: How the Emerging Multiracial, Multiethnic Majority is Changing the United States," will be published in late April or May of this year! This will be my sixth book with my publisher and it truly has been an enjoyable, challenging and exhausting extra activity to write, research and publish these books during the past 13 years.
I love this new book because it allowed me to investigate, learn and share the stories of individuals who are identify themselves as multiracial in the United States. This unique and important book investigates what it means to be multiracial and/or multiethnic in America, examining the issues involved from personal, societal, and cultural perspective.
I particularly love this new book because it's an issue and segment of our population that has been totally neglected in the United States. To me, this is a shame and an embarrassment on our society due to the fact that our society today and in the past do not want to recognize how we really live, have relationships, and families with people of all types of racial and ethnic backgrounds.
Finally, I love this book because it is personal -- it really wasn't a research book. I discovered more about my multiracial background, heritage and family than ever before and truly appreciated the insightful, personal, and cultural information that my multiracial informants shared with me.
Once the book is published, I hope everyone takes the time to read it and seriously think about the thought-provoking issues that I discuss and feel that they need to be acted-upon in our society now. It is time for our major organizations, institutions, leadership, families and individuals to embrace our multiracial world and I truly hope that all of us can live more peacefully together!
