Ep. 115: Growing up Gupta was created as a means for the Guptas (Nikita - a Black woman, and her husband - an Indian man) to talk about their unique family. It's not everyday that you hear of a Black woman marrying an Indian man (whose parents are originally from Northern India). However, they have been blissfully married for nearly 7 years and have 1 child (Amaya) who is now 23 months old. Their website is for all parents engaged in interlinking their cultures for the enrichment of their child/children.

For more on the Guptas, please check out their website at: http://www.growingupgupta.com/

Ep. 113: John Cavazos is a multiracial Latino man, native of Los Angeles, who spent 20 years living and working in New York City.

An actor by trade, he made his New York City professional debut in 1979 at Radio City Music Hall and his Broadway debut in 1981 in the 25th Anniversary Revival of "My Fair Lady" with the legendary actor, Sir Rex Harrison.

John's career received a second wind when he was cast in May of 2004 in The Voices of Liberty at EPCOT/Disney. This a cappela ensemble comprised of eight singers began as The Regeneration in the 1970's - a gospel Acappela group whose gifted voices and soaring arrangements by Derric Johnson (see www.singers.com/gospel/derricjohnson.html) quickly put them on the map traveling and recording and ministering around the country. The group was invited to Disney and offered a contract in 1982 and have been there ever since as The Voices of Liberty. VOL is one of the oldest and longest running productions at Walt Disney World and their impressive vocals have attracted many year-round ticket holders to continue to come back over 30 years just to hear them sing.

In addition, to his impressive career in theater and the performing arts, John, his wife, and his daughters are a multiracial family.  John's wife is Black and West Indian by heritage, and his daughters are multiracial.  John is now active in the Church, and he talks openly on this episode of the podcast about his religious life and about the role of race and racism in his life and the Church.  Don't miss it!

As a result, Brittani created the short film, The Other, which is inspired by real-life events, and which explores the struggle of being in-between races. To learn more about the film go to: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/theother/the-other
