Red and Yellow, Black and Brown gathers together life stories and analysis by twelve contributors who express and seek to understand the often very different dynamics that exist for mixed race people who are not part white. The chapters focus on the social, psychological, and political situations of mixed race people who have links to two or more peoples of color- Chinese and Mexican, Asian and Black, Native American and African American, South Asian and Filipino, Black and Latino/a and so on. Red and Yellow, Black and Brown addresses questions surrounding the meanings and communication of racial identities in dual or multiple minority situations and the editors highlight the theoretical implications of this fresh approach to racial studies.

"This is a first-rate book on an important, topical, and under-theorized area of scholarship. A focus on mixed race people of color, as opposed to mixed race white/people of color, is truly cutting edge."--Kevin Johnson "Dean, UC Davis School of Law "
"In decentering whiteness and highlighting the experiences of multiracial people of multiple minority backgrounds, this anthology signals the exciting start of a new third wave in mixed race studies."--Robert Chao Romero "author of The Chinese in Mexico, 1882-1940 "
