Discussion about transracial adoption of black children on Huffington Post


The HuffPost Live blog aired a show on transracial adoption. Featured guests include an adult transracial adoptee, Rachel Noerdlinger, adoptive parent Mindy Smith, researcher Darron Smith and Toni Oliver from the National Association of Black Social Work (NABSW).

You can watch the episode on the HuffPost Live website or below.


Thanks for this video. I thought Toni Oliver in particular made some excellent points that we can all learn from. There is a wonderful memoir recently published by Catana Tully that reflects on her own life story as a young black girl from Guatemala, adopted by white , German settlers in the wake of WWII. It is called Split at the Root and I think anyone watching this video with interest would find it to be an excellent read.
