Praise for Mixed

“A well-researched, timely, and deeply personal analysis of race in contemporary America.”

Kirkus Indie Reviews

“Jeanne has written a book for our times, and also a book that will help us to come together so we can thrive together. Because of her lived experience, Jeanne is acutely aware that the characteristics that we are born with, and the experiences we have in life, make us different and similar. Yes, she’s learned that not everyone has fair access, opportunity, resources and power to thrive. And, that won’t be achieved until historical barriers and privileges that cause oppression are eliminated. Her powerful story doesn’t offer all of the answers—she’s quite honest in her own personal struggle with being able to find words to difficult interactions about race. Yet, she is encouraging herself and all of us to not shy away from the conversation, to be open and to learn. I consider Jeanne an extraordinary leader, and value her courage and resolve to make a difference.”

Laura Roccaforte, President & CEO of The Learning Exchange

“This book is an invitation into a powerful journey of love, compassion, struggles, success and human dignity. Her voice carries forward into the future the wisdom, energy, hope and dreams of our elders and children for a safe and equitable America where everyone belongs. A must read for educators, and leaders in the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion space.”

Dr. Ramon A. Pastrano IV, CEO of ImpactLives.org

“Accusations and anger, as to racism in America, have to be packaged with truth and real stories for dead ears to listen and the blind eyes to see. This book provides the reader with both. Read, learn, internalize, and then stand up.”

Preston Love Jr., University of Nebraska Omaha Adjunct Professor of Black Studies, former Jesse Jackson presidential campaign manager

“Personal, moving, and timely, Jeanne Jones Mixed should be required reading in schools and organizations across the USA. I’m convinced that if we all understood the personal stories behind the experience of race, racial injustice and parenting we’d be more compassionate and more caring for each other and each other’s children.”
