When Jeff Rogers recorded his Teenage Diary back in 1998, he referred to himself as a ‘halfrican.’ He had a black father and a white mother, and like many teenagers, he was trying to figure out who he was.
We caught up with Jeff in this week’s podcast, and he told us that he doesn’t use the term ‘halfrican’ anymore. He feels that neither ‘halfrican’ nor ‘biracial’ quite match his identity. Now he calls himself a ‘mulatto.’ In fact, he’s the founder of something called Mulatto History Month that celebrates the unique experience of mulattos. It’s from February 15 – March 15. Listen to this podcast to find out why.
