Event Details

What boxes do you mark on the U.S. Census to describe your heritage?


Prior to the year 2000, multiracial people could only check one box in the Race category of the U.S. Census. Now, according to the 2010 U.S. Census, multiracial Americans are the fastest growing demographic group.

Join our discussion about the history of racial and ethnic categories and all there is to learn from the U.S. Census.

Featuring Nicholas A. Jones, chief of the U.S. Census Bureau's Racial Statistics Branch, and sociologist Ann Morning, author of The Nature of Race: How Scientists Think and Teach about Human Difference; and including web artists Josh Begley, creator of Racebox.org, and Jonathan Soma, creator of A Handsome Atlasmoderated by Eric Hamako, doctoral candidate in Social Justice Education at the University of Massachusetts Amherst.

This event is presented in collaboration with MAVIN: The Mixed Heritage Experience.
