In the Shadow of Race: Growing Up As A Multiethnic, Multicultural, and 'multiracial' American
My father's mother was African American-Native American...
My mother's father was German-Danish...
My mother's mother was German...
I was born in Brooklyn, New York, but I grew up in Japan...
For once it's not just black and white. In this compelling chronicle of his journey through life as a multicultural and multiethnic American, Teja Arboleda uniquely and personally challenges institutionalized notions of race, culture, ethnicity, and class. Arboleda has presented his story around the United States through his one-man performance-lecture Ethnic Man! Now, in this book, he fleshes out the depth of his experience as a culturally and racially mixed American, illustrating throughout the enigma of cultural and racial identity and the American identity crisis.
