Resource Plug: Mixed Heritage Center

Since this blog is called "Mixed Race America" and since I am interested in issues pertaining to mixed-race people (in addition to my general interests in all things related to race, ethnicity, and culture in the U.S. and elsewhere), I thought it'd be appropriate to put in a special plug for the launch of a new website and fantastic resource:

THE MIXED HERITAGE CENTER ( -- (click on link for access)

A collaboration between the Association of Mixed Ethnic Americans and the MAVIN foundation (which is one of my "Links to Look at" in the right hand bar) the purpose of the MHC (as stated on their website)

"is a clearinghouse of information relevant to the lives of people who are multiracial, multiethnic, transracially adopted or otherwise affected by the intersection of race and culture. It is an organic resource that will grow and change with contributions from visitors, student groups, and community based organizations who care about mixed heritage issues. Please feel welcome to share your own knowledge, experiences, and concerns either through participation in the discussion forums, by recommending the addition of a resource, or by submitting your own work to"

Check it out--it really is a fantastic website and a great resource for multiethnic, multiracial, mixed-race issues. And it's organic--as in, they want people to help add to the collective knowledge base.

Congratulations MHC!
