Tiffany Jones is a Black and White actress/singer born and raised in Michigan and now living in New York City. These days she spends most of her time pondering and pontificating on the White/Black biracial experience on her YouTube vlog Mulatto Diaries and putting together a documentary tentatively titled "Part of Me is Them." This year, she has enjoyed playing her first biracial character in several readings of the stage play Neighbors by Branden Jacobs-Jenkins. After spending the first 27 years of her life identifying as Black, Tiffany had a "light bulb" moment one day and became mildly obsessed with proudly claiming her whiteness and cultivating a solid biracial identity. The Mulatto Diaries chronicles this process while also providing a place for other biracial people to share their stories as well. Check it out at...http://www.youtube.com/user/tiffdjones.
