Our Homeland is Each Other

Have you ever listened to NPR’s Code Switch? It’s a podcast focused on race and identity, and as their About page says, their journalists are “fascinated by the overlapping themes of race, ethnicity and culture, how they play out in our lives and communities, and how all of this is shifting.”

This past week, the latest Code Switch episode focused on transracial adoption, and participants “[discussed] what they think is missing from mainstream narratives about adoption, and how being an adoptee is an identity unto itself.” The title of the episode, “Our Homeland is Each Other,” was inspired by the closing remarks given at September’s KAtCH conference in Chicago. Give it a listen here.

If of interest, the Code Switch website recently posted an essay about the use of the word “yellow.” Check it out here.
