Outsiders Within: Writing on Transracial Adoption Jane Jeong Trenka, Julia Chinyere Oparah, and Sun Yung Shin. Personal essays, research-based studies, poems and accompanying artwork “challenge the privileging of rational, ‘expert’ knowledge that excludes so many adoptee voices.” The collection offers an eye-opening perspective on both the “the power differences between white people and people of color, the rich and the poor, the more or less empowered in adoption circles” and the sense of loss and limbo that individual adoptees may feel.”   Race and Mixed Race Naomi Zack, Temple University Press, 1994. Tracing social and historical problems related to racial identity, she discusses why race is a matter of such importance in America and examines the treatment of mixed race in law, society, and literature.
