Embracing Liminal Identity : Uncovering Hidden Diversity : Celebrating Cultural Mobility

VIDEO: Beyond Color – Fauna Hodel’s Story – “So over the race card”

Fauna Hodel has dedicated her life to overcoming color. Her mission is to share “the color of love,” as she says, she’s “so over the race card.”  A caucasian-American who was raised by a black family in segregation era Reno Nevada, and who thought she was black until her early 20s, Hodel’s story truly is remarkable.  It’s a story of tenacity, of determination, of giving, living and loving.

It’s a story she must share in her effort to make a difference.  The video above is Fauna’s keynote at the Diversity Summit at Colorado State University. Below is a brief video of her life, and clips from the movie about her life.
