Synopsis: In Black, White, Other journalist Lise Funderburg presents the lives and views of forty-six adult children of black-white unions. Topics include love and marriage, racism in the workplace, and bringing up children in a racially divided world.

The New York Times lauded the book as "important...an example of how we can talk about race with feeling, humor, and dignity." The Buffalo News said that the "pages seethe with a tapestry of life....No book is more likely to force a reader to confront his beliefs about race than this one." Numerous readers responded that they had waited their whole lives for this book.

The first book ever to explore the lives of adult children of black-white unions, Black, White, Other is for the millions of biracial Americans, and for everyone who is interested in the subject of race and the prospects for achieving true pluraism in America.

Review: As we prepare to enter a new millenium, for the United States race remains the issue, woven into the fabric of almost every American life. Yet few Americans confront the ambiguities of race as regularly as those of biracial descent. In Black, White, Other journalist Lise Funderburg questions 46 biracial Americans about family and love, work and religion, and the mythology surrounding the "tragic mulatto." Her book reveals a great deal about life on both sides of the color line--and exposes just how artificial, how socially constructed, our concept of race is to begin with.
