How does your perception of race influence your interaction with others?

The multiracial population in America is increasing. And it seems like most people - and society as a whole - would like these folks to "pick a side." To identify as one race or the other.

But as demographics shift from separate races to more of a continuum, who gets to decide how these individuals identify?

Is it wrong of them to say that they are neither one nor the other, but the space in-between? A product of both (or more!) cultures?

Explore the history of race relations in America, from Bacon's Rebellion in 1676, to the one-drop rule, to the personal history of families who chose to see people as people, regardless of race or color.

Experience stories from multiracial individuals, some of whom are declaring, "I Am Human."

Adapted from the award-winning documentary, How Jack Became Black.
