Mixed Up: Our Changing Racial Identities

$15,074

Mixed race people who live in the USA face great challenges. WE are the largest growing demographic and we are changing the racial landscape.

Different rules apply in ways we don’t even understand. At some point in the near future, it’s possible we’ll all be so MIXED UP that race won’t matter anymore. This documentary WILL begin a caring conversation about race to help all of us understand what we face, and what’s in store.

Who We Are

Rebekah Henderson Librarian/Filmmaker "I used to only identify as black, but now that I have a white son, I've started identifying as mixed."

This will be the second time I have collaborated with Trish Tolentino creator of  Stories Not Forgotten. We completed our first film project in May of 2017, What Makes a Mother? For more information about that project click here

The experience of interviewing people and how touching it was to hear personal stories inspired me to create Mixed Up. 

What We Want To Do

This is a huge conversation. Our first step is to produce a 30-minute documentary. We need resources to continue doing our interviews, learning more, so we can produce a film that will get people talking and thinking more about race.

Why We Think It's Important 

We want to spark change in our discourse about race and inspire other people to share their stories. We want to live in a world where we all foster open and honest communication around what is clearly a difficult subject.

Why You Should Be a Part of Mixed Up

This subject deserves a platform and you can join us! It doesn’t matter whether you are mixed race, in an interracial/multiracial  relationship, or you just want to know more about the multiracial experience, by contributing to this campaign, you are joining the conversation, fostering its growth, and reaping its benefits. Your contribution will help us with our enormous production costs. We want production values on par with big-budget shows, and be able to reach a wide variety of people. 

 

Risks and challenges

Making a film is a challenge because you never know where it will take you. Through it all, as stakeholders, we promise to keep you informed and share all our peaks and valleys as we race to complete the project.
