Visualizing Race, Identity,and Change

Title

Visualizing Race, Identity,and Change

Description

Proof copy of a feature in National Geographic‘s October 125th anniversary issue that looks at the changing face of America in an article by Lise Funderburg, with portraits of multiracial families by Martin Schoeller, that celebrates the beauty of multiracial diversity and shows the limitations around our current categories when talking about race.

In many ways race is about difference and how those differences are codified through language, categories, boxes, segmentation, and even the implicit sorting that goes on in our heads in terms of the way we label others and even ourselves.

... The change in data collection could force us to reconsider our stereotypes, writes Lise Funderburg
