Remember Me: Achievements of Mixed Race People Past & Present

by Asher & Martin Hoyles - £8.99  Hansib Publications (1999)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781870518628 | ISBN 10: 1870518624

Thirty biographies including historical famous names such as Bob Marley, Mary Seacole and Frederick Douglass, as well as less well-known people like Arthur Wharton, the first black professional footballer, Ellen Craft, the runaway slave, and Samuel Coleridge-Taylor, the composer. Also including contemporary British people, representing achienvemnts in politics and the arts, such as Cleo Laine, Shirley Bassey, Cathy Tyson, and Oona King MP. A detailed introduction deals with key issues: should we still be using the term 'race'? why does society still see mixed-race people as 'black'? what is the one-drop rule? why is cultural heritage so important? how many mixed relationships are there? what about the children? There is a bibliography of books dealing with mixed race, and of children's books containing mixed race characters, along with a list of some support groups.
