In the decades following the Supreme Court’s 1967 decision to end laws making interracial marriage illegal, the United States has witnessed a remarkable increase in the number of mixed-race couples and of the multi-ethnic children born to them. As these segments of the population continue to expand and gain presence, more efforts have been made to understand the quality of their daily lives and their psychological development. Through interviews with interracial couples and their children, A BEAUTIFUL BLEND provides a forum for them to express their unique concerns regarding their multicultural backgrounds and their growing visibility in America.
A BEAUTIFUL BLEND also includes HAPA (26 minutes) by Midori Sperandeo.
