"...this was a book that really, completely, changed and challenged
everything that I knew and I thought I knew about race. And I thank you for that, because it's just one of those books that really, really kind of changes your life in a way because it sort of opens things up and makes you think about the world a completely different way, it's a really powerful book...." -Michelle McCrary

The precursor to the longer documentary, 'Multi: The Mixed Signals of Mixedness' coming May 2012.
