I Am Mixed!

Merieta Bayati is the product of the marriage of a #Persian man and a #Blackwoman. Her father Masoud is Persian. Her mother Sylvia is African American. We chat with Merieta about growing up #biracial and #mixed in #Jackson, #Mississippi. Merieta gives a humorous, yet thought-provoking account of growing up “mixed – in Mississippi.” She is the author of The Girlie Girl’s Guide: To Living a Fabulously Fulfilled Life! The #Swirl World celebrates #interracial #relationships between #BlackWomen and the #diverse #men who #love them.
