The census pushed people into strict racial categories for 200 years. A new approach reveals our region’s racial complexity and diversity, Press-Gazette interviews Miriam Brabham

…”It’s a feeling that (UW-Green Bay’s Multicultural Student Success Manager) Miriam Brabham, 31, of Green Bay, also has encountered. For her, the complication of being multiethnic is bound up in her black curls. Brabham, the daughter of a Black father and a white mother of Italian and Irish origin, followed her boyfriend to Green Bay three years ago. While she adores summers at Bay Beach and the uniquely warm and welcoming community, she has had to travel as far away as Chicago to get her hair braided.”
