Feminism

Hello,

I am wondering if there are any feminist resources for individuals of mixed-race descent. An example of such an individual would be a person who prefers to identify as African American, Cherokee, and Vietnamese instead of "Other."

I ask because I see in the feminist.com website numerous discussions that link feminism and the African American, Asian American, Hispanic American, and Native American populations. However, I haven't found a discussion that connects the mixed-race population and feminism.

Thank you in advance,

Vince.

 

Vince,

Rebecca Walker's memoir, Black, White and Jewish as well as Cathy McKinley's book The Book of Sarahs immediately come to mind. There is also a booked entitled Skin Deep, and I believe Joan Morgan has also written on this topic. I hope that helps.

Good luck,

-- Amy
