16 Extraordinary Multiracial Americans

16 Extraordinary Multiracial Americans is a hi-low reader that speaks to the changing face of America.  From President Obama to singer Norah Jones, from speedskater Apolo Ohno to chef Sam Choy, our nation is increasingly one in which people claim a variety of parentages and racial ancestries.

16 short, fascinating biographies pinpoint the key events in the lives of influential Americans claiming a multiracial heritage. The biographies are high-interest and low-readability, making them ideal for students who are curious about the world, but need a little more support.
