Portraits of Multiracial Families
Interviews by Peggy Gillespie
Photos by Gigi Kaeser
Of Many Colors includes photographs and interviews with 20 families (children, teens, and adults) who have bridged the racial divide through interracial relationships and/or adoption. In a world where race is considered by many to be a formidable barrier between people, the families in this traveling exhibit have discovered richness and value in diversity. This exhibit of multiracial families has a great deal to teach about racial identity and racism. Of Many Colors is also available in a beautiful companion book (featuring over 40 families) published by the University of Massachusetts Press.
In 2015, educators in Andover, MA displayed Of Many Colors in every elementary school in the district at the beginning of the school year. Read about this great idea for our exhibit here.
