From Leah Koenig ’13:
Wesleyan’s mixed heritage group, MIX, is creating a project to raise awareness about the mixed heritage community on campus, and to provide an opportunity for mixed-heritage members of the community to self-identify without the limitations of check-boxes.
Inspired by Kip Fulbeck’s “The Hapa Project” (for more info, go here), The MIX Project invites any and all mixed heritage students, faculty, and staff at Wesleyan to participate.
*mixed heritage: def. – multiracial, multiethnic (ex: African American and Jamaican; Chinese and Japanese, etc.), and/or transracially adopted*
Usdan room 110

We will be taking pictures and asking participants to respond to the question “What Are You?” in whatever way they see fit, as well as how they identify racially or ethnically. The project will be published in color in a magazine format, and distributed on campus!

Time: 11:00 AM – 1:00 PM
