Starting with a discussion of the demographics of mixed-race people in Britain, this chapter shows that, rather than being a marginal social group, they are quickly becoming more populous, especially in ethnically diverse metropolitan areas. A review of both North American and British studies of multiracial people demonstrates that there is a significant gap in the research concerning multiracial people as parents and their relationships with their children. This generational perspective, I argue, is needed to achieve a fuller understanding of what it means to be a multiracial individual and parent today.
