As the United States made history welcoming Vice President Kamala Harris, Culturs — the global multicultural magazine, focused on how Harris represents an increasing wave of politicians displaying hidden diversity.
Along with Barack Obama and John McCain, the issue’s cover story highlights how Third Culture Kids (TCKs) like these three examples are changing the face of U.S. politics. Third Culture Kids are those who grow up with geographic and cultural mobility during their formative years when identity is formed. In 1984, Sociologist Ted Ward called TCKs “The prototype citizens of the future.”
“The classic profile of a TCK is someone with a global perspective who is socially adaptable and intellectually flexible,” says Ruth Van Reken, co-author of a celebrated book on Third Culture Kids. In the article, she shares that “The U.S. ‘melting pot’ indeed has birthed notable TCKs in its political ranks.” The issue boasts an original art illustration of Harris amongst Lotus flowers, which is one translation for her name’s meaning.
“We’ve had a lot of celebratory comments about this cover, and gratitude from people sharing that it is a proper observance for such a monumental occasion,” Doni Aldine, Culturs Editor-in-Chief, shares.
The issue covers a number of cross-cultural political up-and-comers, along with articles on digital democracy in online algorithms, views on immigration and cross-cultural lifestyle content like the Ojibwe Native American Jingle Dress dance, a review of the book “Caste,” and more.
This historic Colorado-based print publication celebrates cross-cultural identity and amplifies voices of hidden diversity for TCKs, immigrants, refugees, multiracial and multiethnic people.
