Being Biracial: Where Our Secret Worlds Collide: Educators' Guide

Being Biracial: Educators’ Guide now brings the topic to the classroom in a bold examination of race, including considered portraits of current figures from the multiracial community and a section of questions relating directly to the essays within the original book, with ample space for note-taking. Students are encouraged to re-examine these issues in new and thought-provoking ways, giving all aspects of the subject some vital air time at a key point in their academic development.

About

Shannon Luders-Manuel

I work as a critical mixed race scholar and writer, through both academic and creative publications. With a background in such diverse areas as rhetoric, linguistics and creative writing, my work encapsulates a variety of writing styles, and my interests are likewise varied.

I was named Southern Oregon University's best graduate of the past 10 years by the college's linguistics professor. I then went on to receive my Masters in English Literature, where I produced an 80+ page thesis on the "tragic mulatta" genre. I have a scholarly publication in Vanderbilt University's online journal AmeriQuests, and I presented my SOU capstone paper on dictionary history at the Southeastern Conference on Linguistics.

In 2014, I was a featured writer at the Mixed Remixed Festival in Los Angeles for an in-progress memoir about taking care of my father at the end of life. In June 2016, my commissioned book "Being Biracial: Where Our Secret Worlds Collide: Educators' Guide" was published to accompany an anthology of the same name, published in 2015. I have also had the honor of writing profiles about Olympic open-water swimmer Lynne Cox and YoungArts winner and filmmaker Gabrielle Gorman.

I am passionate about using language to bridge divides between races and cultures and to connect with others on a personal level.
