Forgotten Voices: Multi-Racial Identity in America
According to the 2010 Census, the number of 'multi-racial' Americans grew faster than those identifying as a single-race. The years from 2000-2010 saw a 32% increase in those self-identifying as one or more races with the largest gains coming from the South. Yet, our national conversations on race relations often silence the voices of those who do not strongly identify with a singular racial group. Guided by the narratives of multi-racial Nashvillians, we'll talk about the complexities of navigating a polarized racial landscape when your identity is more complicated than just checking a single box on the census form.
