Sharon H. Chang, a Seattle-based author activist who writes on race, mixed-race and Asian America, was recently recognized as The Seattle Globalist Social Justice Commentator of the Year. Her debut book, Raising Mixed Race: Multiracial Asian Children In a Post-Racial World, is being published through internationally-distributed publisher Routledge/Taylor & Francis.
The book focuses on the five-and-under age population which are now majority children of color. In America, Asian and Multiracial are the fastest growing groups. In 2010 over nine million people reported being mixed-race on the census. The book hopes to support this next generational cohort and their parents in becoming politically conscious and engaged citizens. (end)
