Blurring the Color Line: People often categorize themselves and others into distinct racial groups, yet members of interracial families manage to blur the color line that is so deeply entrenched within our culture. This book tells the stories of thirteen members of interracial families from a variety of ethnic and cultural backgrounds, including the author. Their contexts - generation, geography, appearance, abilities, experiences, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, religion, families - influence their identities. They ask to be accepted, not othered. This interdisciplinary narrative inquiry reflects the tension between the push for traditional research according to formulas and the pull of feminist and borderland thinking that challenge the dominant culture. It invites the reader''s participation, favoring stories over numbers and questions over answers. This work will be useful to professionals and students interested in racial identity, critical race theory, feminist theory, family systems, narrative inquiry, and poetic representation and visual imagery in research.
