Well, the Loving Decision Conference 2007 is officially over. As expected, it was a wonderful conference attended by incredible people. Authors, activists, educators, artists and one daytime soap star came together to discuss, debate and share thier ideas about the future of the mixed-race community. Jungmiwha Bullock, conference coordinator and president of the Association of MultiEthnic Americans deserves a great big round of applause for her tireless work.
For me, the best part of the conference was seeing the many forms of artistic expression with multi-ethnic themes. Represented were artists like Laura Kina and Katrina Grigg-Saito. Writers like Janet Stickmon and Heidi Durrow. And then there were the documentary filmmakers like, Jessica Chen Drammeh and Octavio Warnock-Graham. Each of these artists brings their own creative genius and multiethnic heritage to their work and the results are truly inspiring. Check them out and prepare to be moved.
