Meet Your Facilitator
Hi, I am Robyn, your My Mixed Family group facilitator. I am the daughter of a Norwegian American mother and an African American father. Like any other biracial person, I have constantly straddled two racial realms. I grew up feeling out-of-place in my community. Most people I knew were all the way White. A few were all the way Black or Latinx or Asian. Notice the emphasis on the “all the way.”
My family didn’t talk about being mixed. I didn’t know how I “should” form my cultural identity. I decided that I would act and be White. I fooled myself for a long time. People in my school, work and social worlds weren’t.
Some of the “perks” of being biracial is being seen as “exotic” and “mysterious” and being subjected to the curiosities of others.
I didn’t know who to go to or how to even begin talking about my experiences and reactions to other’s scrutiny of my racial identity. My parents didn’t have a script or strategy either. Our family was one of many who just didn’t know how.
When I committed myself to social justice, I began to unpack this “all the way” issue I had. I desperately wanted to fit into the Black community. I longed to belong to the White community. I am not, and will never be, all the way White or Black. I am both. So, obviously profound right? Many people have told me, “your skin tone doesn’t determine where you belong.” Yes it does, in part.
For a multiracial person and family, it isn’t about skin tone. It starts there, but goes deep into the blood and sinews of the lived experiences of being a person of color in our society.
So where do I belong? With other multicultural people! This was a big “ah ha!” moment for me. Here’s the fantastic news: there are SOOOOO many of us! This tribe is abundant.
Here is where you come in. I want to be a thread that strings you, your family and your multicultural tribe together. The My Mixed Family group is my way of starting this woven tapestry. Come, be a part of this beautiful group and be free to be ALL THE WAY YOU!
