Will The Kids Be Alright? Conversation with Mira Jacob and Tina Chang, moderated by Robin Beth Schaer.
Mira Jacob’s graphic memoir Good Talk: A Memoir in Conversation depicts her own honest and approachable responses to her biracial son’s questions about race, politics, and family. Lauded poet Tina Chang writes in her most recent collection of poetry, Hybrida, an unapologetically bold and intimate confrontation of the racial tensions felt by a mother raising a mixed race child, reflecting on acts of anti-Black violence. Join these authors in a conversation on the complexities of multiracial family raising in the challenging political climate of contemporary America.
