In this section, a variety of well-seasoned veterans speak to issues multiracial individuals and interracial couples face. With wisdom, graciousness, and honesty, they openly discuss biracial children, family issues, combining cultures, and racial reconciliation. The authors in this section all do an excellent job of examining the many questions that arise with interracial and inter-cultural relationships. While the book focuses primarily on interracial relationships, I interchange this term with inter-cultural b/c it also address this dynamic as well. Clearly, the most thorough experience covered is black-white marriage, but I found much that translated to our experience even though we're not a black-white couple.
An appendix includes a thorough list of websites, books, support groups, organizations, and research articles for multiracial individuals and families.
An addition to my original review. This book is not only for black man/white woman relationships, as the picture on the cover shows. The authors come from a variety of ethnicities, and write about their own experiences. Most of them are Americans and married to Americans, but their differing cultures still affect their relationship.

Craig S. Keener - a European American married to a woman from the Congo

Ken Ham - a biologist writing not about inter-cultural marriage but about all people being related through Adam
Sundee Tucker Frazier - a biracial woman, providing the perspective of the children of mixed marriages (African American father, European American mother)
David Tatlock - a European American married to an African American
Art and Debbie Lucero - a triracial Mexican man (with European, African, and Native American ancestors) and a biracial American woman (European American father and Japanese American mother)
