Our Color Conversation: Developing Healthy Self-Esteem and Positive Racial Identity was a big hit. Our excellent facilitator and board member, Jennifer Noble, PhD, led the discussion with her expertise as a therapist while avoiding the “clinical speak” that often intimidates people. We then got sneak peeks at Rose Espiritu’s film “Mixed Up” with a variety of mixed points of view that spurred many discussion points and whetted the appetite for more. Finally, we wrapped with Jasmine Curtis’s story about her journey to embrace her natural hair, her product line AVOCURL, and a hair demonstration. Definitely a unique event but then all our Color Conversations are unique and a special treat for those that are able to attend.
Mixed Ethnicities Student Headquarters (MESH) at UC Santa Cruz held their Defining and Exploring Mixed Identities conference on February 20th. MASC board member Kiyoshi Houston presented “Our Past and Future: a Journey Through the History of the Multiracial Movement.”
In Kiyoshi’s words:
“Just gave a very well received presentation at UCSC’s Mixed Ethnicities Student Headquarters’ Defining & Exploring Mixed Identities Conference. Feel so humbled, blessed & empowered to share about something dear to my heart and have it so well received. Sending much love to UCSC’s MESH & what they are doing over here!”
