Soledad O'Brien - Transcending Race in America

Did you know interracial marriage was illegal in 16 states until 1967?

The life stories in each volume of  "Transcending Race in America: Biographies of Biracial Achievers" ask and answer this question: What is it like to be biracial in America--to have a mother and a father from different races?

The series is for young adult readers.

Others in the series include historical and contemporary biographies: Alicia Keys, Beyonce, David Blaine, Halle Berry, Derek Jeter, Frederick Douglass, Mariah Carey, Prince, Rosa Parks, Salma Hayey and W.E.B. DuBois.

David Robson's young adult books include The Murder of Emmett Till, The Israeli-Palestinian Conflict, Auschwitz, The Black Arts Movement, The Kennedy Assassination, and The Devil.
