The purpose of this study is to explore the racial identity formation of black/white multiracial people and identify factors that shape their racial identity experiences while using the ecological approach to explain mixed-race racial identity development. The research used semi-structured interviews of ten college students at a small private liberal arts college in the Midwest. This research found that social class and gender does not dictate how Black/white mixed-race individuals racially identify themselves. Also, more people today are identifying as exclusively black than prior research.
