Multiracial people are the fastest growing demographic in America, yet there is no official political recognition for mixed-race people. MULTIRACIAL IDENTITY explores the social, political, and religious impact of the multiracial movement and the lived experience of being multiracial.
 
Different racial and cultural groups see multiracialism differently. For some Whites multiracialism represents the pollution of the White race. For some Blacks it represents an attempt to escape Blackness. And for some Asians, Latinos, and Arabs, multiracialism can be seen as ill equipped to perpetuate cultural traditions and therefore represents the dilution of the culture.

Note: There are two versions of this program on the same DVD: 77-minutes and 56-minutes.

"A sensitive, thorough going examination of a very complex issue that is rife with social, political and economic ramifications. The interviews with academics are thoughtful, comprehensive and present divergent viewpoints. The spokespeople for multiracial viewpoints are articulate and perceptive...This film is highly recommended to all collections and a must have for those institutions with multicultural programs." - Patricia McGee, Tennessee Technological University, Educational Media Reviews Online
