Being Black and Biracial in America
Growing up the daughter of an African-American father and a white mother, in Palisades, New York and Madison, Wisconsin, Julie Lythcott-Haims had to navigate a white world. Her newest novel, Real American: A Memoir, details her journey in that world - from being a mixed-race teen to her years as a Stanford undergraduate and Harvard Law School, and traveling to Ghana in 2015 to see where her father proposed to her mother.
Prior to writing this novel, Lythcott-Haims published How to Raise an Adult: Break Free of the Overparenting Trap and Prepare Your Kid for Success. She also served as Dean of Freshmen and Undergraduate Advising at Stanford University for over a decade. Her work has appeared on TEDx talks, Forbes, and the Chicago Tribune.
