I’ll be at Pomona College tomorrow

Super-late notice, but if any of you are in the Los Angeles area, I’m going to be doing a workshop tomorrow evening at Pomona College in Claremont. It’s open to the public so feel free to come by and say hi! Here are the details:

Cute But Confused: Myths and Realities of Mixed Race Identity

60-minute presentation followed by 30 minutes of facilitated discussion.

“Mixed babies are the cutest! Too bad they grow up to be such confused adults.” Chances are you’ve heard others talk about mixed race people using simplistic stereotypes like this. The reality is that being multiracial is a complex, multi-layered experience. In this seminar, Carmen Van Kerckhove identifies some of the common assumptions made about mixed race people, points out why these are untrue, and discusses some of the implications that the growing multiracial population has on communities of color.

Location:    Doms Lounge in the Smith Campus Center, Pomona College
