Ep. 36: Shannon Luders-Manuel is a writer who wrote her masters thesis on the rhetorical implications of the “tragic mulatta” genre. She is currently working on a memoir, which was featured at the 2014 Mixed Remixed Festival (the nation’s premiere cultural arts festival celebrating stories of the Mixed experience, multiracial and multicultural families and individuals through films, books and performance), about taking care of her father at the end of life and how her experiences with him growing up helped shape her identity.
Shannon has written about recent events surrounding relations between Black America and the Police and events relating to Black Lives Matter, including her recent article on the website For Harriet, which you can see here: http://www.forharriet.com/2015/08/what-it-means-to-be-mixed-race-during.html#axzz3pSEtw3xk. That article has gone “viral” and has led dozens of biracial strangers to thank Shannon for speaking their truths.
