The Generation MIX National Awareness Tour.
For two months during the spring of 2005, MAVIN Foundation sent five 20-somethings on a 10,000-mile journey across the nation in a 26-foot R.V. to raise awareness of America's mixed race baby boom. Along the way, they met hundreds of people, from U.S. Senator Barack Obama (D-IL) to Bubba the tow truck driver. Here are just a few of the snapshots taken during their historic tour!
