The recent births of Jack and June, the third multiracial generation in filmmaker Eli Steele's family, coincided with a startling projection: by the year 2050, at least 20 percent of all Americans will self-identify as two or more races. What will this fate mean to a nation that has been tormented by race throughout its history? Born to a black father and a Jewish mother, Steele has long battled the forces of identity politics, from college campuses to places of employment.
