The exhibit "Being Mixed Race in a Mono-racially Organized World: Interracial Identity in the U.S. and Around the World — What Research and Mixed Race People Tell Us" is an exploration into the library's collections about the diversity of mixed race heritage. Through research, narratives, demographic data, and a variety of visual and published materials, explore multifaceted aspects of mixed race heritage with insights from many perspectives.

The 2020 U.S. Census illuminated a 276 percent increase in individuals who identify as "two or more races" since 2010. In recognition of the growing numbers of mixed race-identifying people at the University of Michigan, throughout the country, and across the globe, we're excited to unveil this new exhibit — a unique exploration of changing demographics and intersectional identities.
