Publisher's Weekly Review

Sundee Frazier, a self-described "AmericanAfricanScottishDutchDanishSwedeIndigenousPerson," tackles the ambiguities of being a multiracial woman of faith in Check All That Apply: Finding Wholeness as a Multiracial Person. In it she cogently describes the particular tension of multiracial identity, the sense of never quite belonging anywhere; she also insists that one's core identity comes only from God. Considering that the number of interracial marriages has swelled from 310,000 in 1970 to 1.3 million in 1994, there is an ever-enlarging audience for Frazier's thoughtful reflections.
