Race is nothing. Family is everything.

Sheli Turner,
Los Angeles, CA

While I am now a biracial 62 year old woman, who bore living witness to the difficulties my parents had in this country due to their marriage, this means less and less to my sons who are now marrying, and will also have mixed-race children by default. What “race” will these children be as their Black DNA is further mixed with other wonderful characteristics reflective of their mothers? My grandchildren will still be wonderfully human, just like me. And I will carry their legacy, just as my grandmothers and grandfathers did for me. They will always be able to claim their heritage with love and great pride.
