Episode 1 Q&A:Biraciality

In this Q & A episode of the Demystifying Diversity Podcast, Daralyse and AnnaMarie delve more deeply into the topics discussed in Biraciality: Embracing the Nuanced Nature of Race, Ethnicity, and Identity.

They review the lingering impact of the one-drop rule, the constructed and learned definitions of race, and the ways in which individual and societal perceptions can shift over time. Together, they discuss the ways in which more expanded understandings of race can help break down internal and external barriers.

In the listener participation portion, listeners ask questions and share insights that will inspire you to think more deeply and inspire you to move beyond limited conceptions of race and identity.
