We also honored our Lebanese background with lots of Lebanese cooking!"

Listen as Suzie explains her Lebanese (and other) roots and the juxtaposition of those with New Orleans culture.  And, hear how her ancestry and heritage have informed her life and work.

Ep. 90: Selena Anduze is originally from the island of St. Croix in the West Indies.  She is French, Danish, Swedish, Puerto Rican, Native American Indian, Algerian, and Jewish - in other words, quintessentially multiracial.  And, in St. Croix, where her family was a prominent one (her grandfather was a Senator), race wasn't really an issue of contention.  That changed, however, when she moved to Atlanta and was confronted head-on with issues of race, racism, and discrimination.  This period of her life caused her to struggle with questions of self-confidence and identity, but over time (after a pit stop to undertake a career as a naturopathic doctor), Selena found her footing, as she moved back into acting - a lifelong passion.  And, now you can see her on tv, including on the reincarnation of the popular tv show "MacGyver."

Don't miss this fascinating interview!

Stevvi can also be seen in the Academy-Award winning documentary film 20 Feet From Stardom.

Ep. 88: Kimberly Torres is Black, Cuban, Puerto Rican and Italian.  She grew up and still lives in Philadelphia, where she has developed a powerful and profound artistic voice, which she represents through primarily oil-based paintings.  Given her extremely diverse background, Kim is no stranger to being a part of (and being isolated from) multiple communities.  However, through her art, she's been able to synthesize her expansive and diverse background and experience into one very moving and significant multiracial voice that celebrates racial identity for people coming from a multiracial/Biracial background. Her paintings are meant to show symbols that culturally connect to her subjects depending on their mixture. By containing them in frames also gives them a sense of preciousness. Her interests in photorealism, portraiture, Northern Baroque and Italian Renaissance work are what’s influencing the use of portraiture in her work.

You can find her work at: http://kimberlytorres93.wixsite.com/paintingsandrawings and on Instagram at: https://www.instagram.com/kimi_heartsxoxo/

Ep. 72: Kevin Williams is a man of many hats, many talents, and many races and ethnicities.  Hailing originally from St. Louis, Kevin has a heritage that is quintessentially American and that consists of Black, Native American, Welsh and Jewish ancestry.

An alum of Morehouse College and Stanford University's MBA program, Kevin is also a proud military man, having served in the US Navy.  Before and after his MBA education, he worked on Wall Street, then he explored comedy as a creative outlet, and now he's found his true passion as an Ed-Tech professional for a California-based startup company.

He's also found the love of his life, who is about to marry.  Interestingly, Kevin's fiancee is a White woman from Florida, adding yet another layer to Kevin's multiracial life and experience.

A man of wit, wisdom, humor and warmth, Kevin is a good guy, a good friend, and a raconteur when it comes to his life, life in general and what it means to be a multiracial man in this World.  Take a listen.

Ep. 71 - Barbara Savage is a woman of many hats (and talents).  A multiracial (Black and Indian) woman who converted to Judaism as an adult, Barbara has myriad interests and talents.  She's been a LA Raiders cheerleader, worked as a private investigator, and now she's a contestant on FOX's "Master Chef." 

Along the way, given her multiracial heritage and Jewish faith, she's had an interesting vantage point from which to observe society and participate in her community.  Listen as she talks about all this and about her dad's very interesting career.

Ep. 70: Michelle Maltais serves as deputy director of audience engagement. Since she joined the Los Angeles Times in 1997 as a copy editor, Michelle has gone where no one has gone before. (Yes, she’s a bit of a “Star Trek” nerd as well.) She served as the newsroom’s first broadcast producer and interactive video executive producer, in addition to occasionally writing on a variety of topics including technology and family. In her off time, Michelle geeks out on grammar, sci-fi and movie minutiae.

Listen as Michelle discusses her Jamaican roots (her mother was a first-generation Jamaican immigrant), growing up multiracial, her decision to become a journalist, and life, now, as a multiracial family mom.
