Praise

“An indispensable study that illustrates the importance of speaking with children on race so that they can be prepared to deal with the reality of it throughout their lives. It is a vital book for parents, caregivers, and educators committed to this kind of work. Bravo!”
—Rudy P. Guevarra Jr., author of Becoming Mexipino: Multiethnic Identities and Communities in San Diego

“Far too often, race is examined and discussed along a Black and White binary, which leaves multiracial children feeling as though they do not have a place at the table. In order to strive for racial inclusion and justice, our conversations must include the nuances of multiracial identity.”
—Liz Kleinrock, educator and founder of Teach and Transform
 
Raising Multiracial Children provides exercises, questions, an intersectional analysis, curricula, and age-appropriate guidelines for nurturing and supporting the next generation of multiracial people and their allies.”
—Paul Kivel, educator, activist, and author of Uprooting Racism: How White People Can Work for Racial Justice 
 
“My wife is Indian, born in New Delhi, and I am African American, born in the American South. Our three children—the ‘Three Little Blindians’—are growing up in Los Angeles with a vastly different experience than either of us had. On my wife’s side of the family tree, our children can trace their roots back to the founding of New Delhi. On my side, we’re aware of a few proud generations, and we’ve also had to find joy in discovering our African roots together. We’ve done our best to teach them that they are not ‘half’ anything.  Rather, they have two rich ancestries that they can call on to ground them in their journey through life. As we have experienced in our own Black and Indian family, raising multiracial children is such a critical topic. Farzana isolates invaluable tools to help give any child a more comprehensive sense of self-identity.”
—Jason George, actor from Grey’s Anatomy and Station 19, on raising children with his wife, writer and educator Vandana Khanna

“I can’t imagine a person more qualified to write about multiracial and multicultural children than Farzana Nayani. She presents excellent advice to parents, teachers, and cross-cultural trainers concerning the challenges and opportunities faced by multiracial children.  She brings a rich background to this task based on years of careful study, knowledge learned from leading workshops, and her own experiences as a spouse and mother.”
—Richard W. Brislin, professor emeritus, University of Hawai`i
