Debut book looks at the experience of being mixed heritage in modern Britain

A London writer's debut book looks at the stereotypes, joys and struggles that come with being of mixed heritage. 

Mixed/Other by Natalie Morris draws on her own experiences plus dozens of others about what it's like to be mixed-race in modern Britain.

“I never thought of myself as ‘other’ or a racialised person until I got older and moved to London and started to mix in more diverse circles and started to see how being racialised, being perceived as a non-white person was having an impact on my life and prospects," Natalie told ITV London.

"That’s why I think it was important to start these discussions and find a place where mixed people feel like they belong, where they have some kind of collective identity."
