Summary The author explores the ethnic and racial identity formation among high school and college students of racially mixed heritage. The portraits in this book provide a thorough examination of the dynamic ethnic and racial lives of a multifaceted and growing segment of students. Unlike most recent projects on mixed heritage people which are narrow in scope and focus on one set of backgrounds (e.g., black and white or black and Japanese), the subjects in this study represent a vast array of heritages, including those of dual minority ancestry.
Subject Minorities -- Education -- United States -- Case studies.
Racially mixed people -- Education -- United States -- Case studies.
United States -- Ethnic relations -- Case studies.
