Event Description

Joy Zarembka is executive director of the Institute for Policy Studies and author of The Pigment of Your Imagination: Mixed Race in a Global Society (Madera Press).

Does society or the individual determine racial classification? By combining vivid anecdotes of her travels, historical background, and oral histories from mixed-race families, Joy Zarembka examines the notion of race and identity to better understand the vastly different interpretations of racial identity in different parts of the world.

Born to a Black mother and a White father in the U.S., Joy reflects on crossing borders of race and nationality in different countries including England, Kenya, Zimbabwe, Jamaica, and the U.S.  She’ll discuss the experience of being treated as white, brown, colored and different castes.
