About the Panelists

Our Biracial/Mixed (Part 1) panel discussion featured  Jess Johnson a Content-creator and Marketing Specialist, Samson Bailey Program Manager in Sales and Adoption for Google for Education. Geneva “Genae” Tripp, Regulatory Specialist at a Medical Device Company and Fitness Instructor. Dr. Joelina Machera, a veteran K-12 teacher and administrator, who works as a consultant. And back for another episode is Zach Elyshevitz, Harlem elementary school music teacher, who’s getting his Master’s in Special Education. We explored identity through the lens of the proximity to whiteness, in other words, each guest has a white parent.
