Abstract

People in Harmony is a charity that has been active for some 35 years. It was formed as a self help group to offer a refuge to mixed race families and mixed race people from the onslaught of the politics of the time (the heyday of Enoch Powell) when the race card was often played with reference to the perceived unnatural and inappropriate (if not distasteful) practise and outcomes of race mixing.

Abstract

The aim of the article is to present evidence concerning the educational needs of mixed heritage pupils and in particular those of White/Black Caribbean origin and to outline the challenges for policy and practice in meeting the needs of these learners. The article draws on and extends the findings of original research (Tikly, Caballero, Haynes and Hill; 2004) which was sponsored by the Department for Education and Skills (DfES) and is the largest and most comprehensive study of its kind . The article will begin by outlining the evidence relating to the achievement of White/Black Caribbean pupils and the nature of the barriers to achievement facing this group. This will provide a basis for a discussion in the second part of the article about the challenges facing policy makers and practitioners.

Abstract

In 2006 I carried out research focusing on the recognition of inequalities in health for Black and Minority Ethnic groups. It specifically focused on if, and how these inequalities will effect the growing mixed race population and the implications this may have on existing health policy. It also explored issues of identity as a critique on existing outdated research, in an effort to gain insight into how mixed race people feel they are perceived ('racially') by society and how they want to be perceived.

Abstract

This is a personal reflection on being mixed race and what I see as the issues for mixed race children now. It is based on being a headteacher in inner London for many years and working with mixed race students. It is not based on researched evidence.

A mixed-race experience

Abstract

I am 37 year-old man living in Manchester. A son, a brother an uncle and I love reggae music. I have worked in education for the past 15 years and currently manage the Multiple Heritage Project. Who I am is made up of lots of different things and shifts depending on the context and what questions I am being asked. Some things people find quirky about me, my liking for brown shoes is just one. My racial identity is also something of a talking-point to people. I self-identify as mixed race, not black. Not confused, not caught between cultures, not a marginal man. I am me. But getting to know me wasn't easy!
