The phrase "Race Ate Out Family Trees" is inspired by a poem written by Kirsten Hurst (Creative '17 team). This poem is featured in the documentary Mourning the Creation of Racial Categories, Part 1, the Categories Black and White.  Note that racial categories in the United States were created without regard for family ties. Activist Carlos Fernandez tells us that the separation of biologically related peoples into racial categories “is at the heart of an unresolved American identity crisis…and makes the resolution of the general race problem virtually impossible.” For racial categories to make sense, people cannot acknowledge the existence or importance of family members who appear different races from them. 

The official bracelet of Mourning the Creation of Racial Categories Project.
