"Mixed & Multi"

 "Mixed & Multi"  
An Inter-racial couple talks to CNN's Soledad O'Brien, a biracial journalist about their "mixed & multi" experiences.  Bill Cohen, former U.S. Defense Secretary, had a multi-religious background and married Janet Langhart, born Janet Floyd, an African American journalist with a multi-racial heritage.  They wrote a memoir about their mixed & multi experiences as well. 

It also appears that Ms. Cohen has written a wonderful stage-play. An imaginary conversation between Anne Frank and Emmett Till and they share their experiences with one another. This no doubt is a powerful play and ultimately challenges our capacity on acceptance, empathy and tolerance regarding cultural, racial and religious diversity. Bravo Janet!   I wish it much, much success and I hope to see it someday.  Hope you can bring it to Metro-Detroit area, we need it!
