Ruby of Growing Up Blackxican

Ruby of Growing Up Blackxican | Mixed American Life | Scoop.it

In this second installment of our holiday ITYC Rewind series, we revisit another one of our early interviews with Ruby of Growing Up Blackxican.
As I mentioned in the intro for this rewind, ITYC had the good fortune of meeting Ruby offline and she's just as fun in person as she is in the interview. Ruby's blog has grown by leaps and bounds since we first met and she's done really exciting things with her business Ruby's Design Studio (formerly known as Paper Sunshines). During the our chat, Ruby shared her story about raising her two adorable children to be proud of both their Mexican and Black heritage.

My Experience on the Indian-Negro Color Line

My Experience on the Indian-Negro Color Line | Mixed American Life | Scoop.it

"Classroom discussions about race motivated me, at the age of 46, to reclaim my Indian ancestry by having my birth certificate changed from “Negro” to “American Indian.” The experience was emotionally overwhelming as I had been denied my birthright as an E. Pequot-Nottoway. Changing my birth certificate was not because I was ashamed of my multiracial identity; it was an affirmation of my survival as an Indian and an act of self-determination in a country that has gone so far to erase my ancestry from history."
