Abstract

The term interracial refers to couples in which one partner is of a different race than the other. Interracial couples have long captured the attention of social scientists who believe these relationships offer insights into broader race relations. Most research on this topic focuses upon heterosexual couples, but a growing number of studies examine same-sex interracial intimacy, especially between Blacks and Whites. This entry explores the patterns, history, and contemporary challenges of same-sex interracial relationships.
