What is the Multiracial identity? In the introduction to The Multiracial Identity Podcast, the host Robert Cox shares what the Multiracial identity means to him, in hopes of starting a conversation about what it means to the Multiracial community in America.
A community that is, as of 2023, almost 34 million strong.

Thanks for listening to The Multiracial Identity Podcast. In this very first episode of what will be an ongoing series of podcasts, Robert is joined by Susan Graham.
The founder of Project RACE, the main multiracial rights advocacy group for the last 30 years, Susan kicks us off by telling us her story. It started in 1990, it continues until today, and it details the foundation of the modern multiracial rights movement in America.
But first, a school enrollment in Georgia inspires a mother to advocate for her Multiracial son and daughter.

How’s your health as a Multiracial person in America?
Over and under dosing from common drugs, added donor complications, special neonatal concerns, Multiracial adults and children face challenges that many in the community are unaware of, mostly because of the lack of research by the medical establishment on and for Multiracial people.
Robert is joined again by Susan Graham of Project RACE for Episode 2 to discuss the medical implications of the Multiracial identity not being officially recognized by the US government.

Robert and his returning guest Susan Graham of Project RACE talk about an issue that has affected both the Multiracial community as a whole and many Multiracial people personally: bigotry from people of color.
Continuing their look into Multiracial history, Susan and Robert discuss a key congressional hearing that took place before the census in 2000. Susan recounts how particularly Black politicians, and groups representing people of color and marginalized populations, openly fought against the Multiracial classification being added to the 2000 census.
Why? Was it really a concern for proper statistical aggregation? Or was it just plain, old bigotry.
