About the Book

How multiracial people navigate the complexities of race and love

In the United States, more than seven million people claim to be multiracial, or have racially mixed heritage, parentage, or ancestry. In The Colors of Love, Melinda A. Mills explores how multiracial people navigate their complex--and often misunderstood--identities in romantic relationships.

Drawing on sixty interviews with multiracial people in interracial relationships, Mills explores how people define and assert their racial identities both on their own and with their partners. She shows us how similarities and differences in identity, skin color, and racial composition shape how multiracial people choose, experience, and navigate love.

Mills highlights the unexpected ways in which multiracial individuals choose to both support and subvert the borders of race as individuals and as romantic partners. The Colors of Love broadens our understanding about race and love in the twenty-first century.

About the Author: Melinda A. Mills is Associate Professor of Women's and Gender Studies, Sociology, and Anthropology, and Coordinator of Women's and Gender Studies at Castleton University. She is the author of the award-winning book, The Borders of Race: Patrolling "Multiracial" Identities, and Racial Mixture and Musical Mash-Ups in the Life and Art of Bruno Mars.
