A Talk with Transracial Adoptees – The right way to raise a transracially adopted child is a hot-button issue.  Our panel for this course are the real experts – adults of color who were adopted by white families.  The panel consists of three transracial adoptees – black and white biracial, Asian and Hispanic – who discuss challenges they faced growing up, what their parents did right and what they wish their parents had known.

How Transracial Adoptees Navigate Race as They Age – How do children of color adopted by white parents learn about race and their place in our racially aware society?  How do transracial adoptees form their racial identity and what can adoptive parents do to help? In this course, adult transracial adoptee and adoption researcher, Dr. Gina Samuels, talks about how transracial adoptees navigate rage as they age.  Dr. Samuels is an Associate Professor at the University of Chicago’s School of Social Service Administration and a faculty affiliate at The Center for the Study of Race, Politics, and Culture. Her research and publications examine transracial adoption, multiracial identity formation, and family identity and belonging among young adults with foster care and adoption histories.

Interracial Adoptive Parenting: White Parents with Brown Children – Transracial adoption is becoming increasingly popular in the US. In this course, Dr. Marlene Fine talks about issues unique to parenting a child of a different race. Dr. Fine is a Professor Emerita from Simmons College in Boston MA specializing in issues related to race, racial identity, and interracial communication, and the co-author with her spouse, Fern Johnson, of The Interracial Adoption Option: Creating a Family Across Race. She is the white adoptive mother of two African American sons, both adopted as infants and now ages 24 and 25. She is also a facilitator with the YW Boston Community Dialogues on Race and Ethnicity.

Raising Children of Color in a Race-Conscious World – How can white parents raise children of color in this race-conscious world? In this course, Marguerite Wright, a psychologist for the Center for the Vulnerable Child at Children’s Hospital and Research Center Oakland, and author of I’m Chocolate, You’re Vanilla: Raising Healthy Black and Biracial Children in a Race-Conscious World, talks about the challenges of parenting a transracially adopted child.

Adult Transracial Adoptees Teach Us About Adoption – Transracial adoption requires a different type of parenting. What must white adoptive parents keep in mind when raising black and Asian kids? In this course, we interview with Rhonda Roorda, author of In Their Voices: Black Americans on Transracial Adoption, and an adult transracial adoptee.
