If you are hosting an event or need someone to “go-with”, join us and share, share, share.

We’ve got updates from Laura Kina, Lisa Jones (Topaz Club), and Steve Riley. Oh yeah……If you reside in the Republic of Georgia, we’ll let you know where to go to get a mulatto spray tan….Yes, I said it!!!

You see we have a lot to discuss so please feel free to join us by dialing in or joining our chat room.

And don’t forget to tell a friend.

Also, we want to use this time to say “Thank You” to everyone who continues to follow us. You may have noticed that our site is missing a few episodes from the past few weeks. For anyone who doesn’t know, I’ve been broadcasting live from Northeastern Ohio since early January and Mother Nature continues to express her authority over all things by sending -35 degree temps and record snowfalls our way. Needless to say, when pipes burst, fire alarms begin to sound and therefore radio shows cannot be recorded. So, thank you for your continued support.

As long as Mother Nature allows, we will continue to bring you episodes that showcase some amazing people and even more amazing movements.”

Mixed Race Radio- What Do You Do When “Neither/Both” is Your Only Choice? With Lola Osunkoya

Mixed race radio tiffany rae“On today’s episode of Mixed Race Radio, we will meet Lola Osunkoya, author of the blog, Neither/Both and of Neither/Both LLC, a private practice focused on counseling and community building in the Mixed-Race community. Join me today as Lola shares details and insights from her trip to Nigeria in 2006 when she went to meet her father and began to explore Identity even deeper.

“I am Mixed-Race. The experience of being “neither/both” – living among and between two races/cultures – expands beyond being Mixed. I find the experience is similar to Trans-Racial adoptees and the children of immigrants growing up first generation in America. And frankly, the experience can be similar among anyone Of Color who regularly crosses culture. Our experience begins with our families of origin, so I also include parents of the community and people in interracial relationships.”

By day, Lola is a mental health clinician working toward licensure as a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor (LPCC).  She was born and raised in Minneapolis, MN and her interest in Mixed Race identity development was born out of her personal experience as the daughter of a White American mother and Nigerian father.  At all other times, Lola explores historical components affecting individuals who self-identify as Black/White Biracials.

We will discuss some common experiences in Mixed Race identity and their effects on mental health, Mixed-Race identity development theoretical models, Adler’s Social Interest and Mixed Race community, AND IF THAT WASN’T ENOUGH, Lola will discuss her “Mixed in Mpls” project and Stereotype vulnerability.”

Mixed Race Radio – “The R Word”~ A Conversation Starter for White Students Who Want to be Teachers

Mixed race radio tiffany rae “On TODAY’S episode of Mixed Race Radio, we will meet Educator and Author of The R Word, Marianne Modica, Assistant Professor of Education at Valley Forge Christian College in Phoenixville, PA. Marianne recently received her PhD in Childhood Studies from Rutgers University, Camden, New Jersey and for the last 16 years, Dr. Modica has been a teacher educator at a small, mostly white college. “I have noticed that my white students, many of whom are preparing to enter the teaching profession in racially diverse settings, have thought little about the impact of race on their lives and the lives of people around them. This inspired me to write The R Word, a story that I hoped would create awareness in white youth about the racial inequity that continues in our contemporary society. I believe my mission is to help my students understand that race is a salient issue, that it impacts all of our lives every day, and that, as future teachers, they must explore their own racial identity as whites if they are to create a classroom environment that helps youth in their classes to develop healthy racial identities.”

Join us as we discuss Marianne’s young adult novel, The R Word, which tells the story of a very sheltered white teenager named Rachel who has never thought about race or recognized what her whiteness affords her every day.  Rachel is representative of many white youth found in suburban settings, including Dr. Modica’s own children and the college students she’s been teaching for the last 16 years.  When the character Rachel befriends students of color, she begins to see the world through their eyes, and realizes how her whiteness has protected her from profiling and afforded her the luxury of an affluent school district all of her life.”
