In Conversation with The Mixed Museum

We’ve seen a huge shift in the way mixedness is understood. There are now many thought-provoking books, newsletters and social media accounts exploring contemporary British mixed race experiences.

In this series, we wanted to put the present day into context, by speaking to people who are exploring the UK’s mixed race history through their work, particularly where it overlaps with some of the narratives in our permanent collection and special exhibitions.

Read on to hear fresh perspectives on our shared past.

We talk to the children’s author and girls’ rights campaigner about bringing Indian history to life – and why her writing reflects her activism
We talk to the Fablehouse author about growing up in care – and the healing power of knowing your own history.
We talk to the writer of And about her Welsh childhood, and why she chose to tell her mother’s story.
