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.

To facilitate its use as a course text, In the Shadow of Race is offered with a Teacher's Guide written by Christine Clark. Topics for discussion include: * the social construction of race:
* racial separatism vs. diversity:
* racial, ethnic, and cultural identity development:
* the politics of racial categorization:
* mixed 'race' peoples:
* cultural identity vs. identity by heritage:
* the concept of a 'cultural home:' and
* changing identities within cultures.
