Book on Eventbrite

We’re beyond lucky to be graced with the presence of Nicole Ocran and Emma Slade Edmondson, hosts of the wonderful Mixed Up podcast, to discuss their book The Half Of It!

In The Half of It, Emma and Nicole discuss what it truly means to be mixed-race and all the different layers that fall into this. They will delve into everything from culture and identity, to interracial relationships, to adoption, to understanding the historical context of mixed-race people – and ultimately culminating in a rounder and deeper appreciation for the mixed-identity.

They will illuminate us on their own experiences of growing up mixed, interweaving guest interviews and insights from people they talk to along the way.

Emma and Nicole want to break down barriers and open up a deeper dialogue of the mixed-race experience. Although this was born out of a desire to speak directly to the mixed-race community, they discovered there is something in it for everyone. Whether you are mixed, you know someone mixed, if you have ever considered dating outside of your race, if you’re a parent committed to exposing your child to a more diverse view of the world, or indeed an adult committed to expanding your view of culture and identity – this is for you.
