The Bridge
 
As the child of an interracial couple, Brigitte Christmon’s home life was conflicted. After her father’s recent passing, Brigitte realized she had to carve out a new normal for her all-black sisters and black family and all-white brothers and white family (she was the only one born without siblings from shared parents). Brigitte always felt her life was compartmentalized the way she dressed and communicated and that would vary between white and black worlds. She simply got used to the idea of keeping her white family and her black family equally separated in boxes. As she grew older and began to plan her marriage, having children, and living life, she slowly began to tire from all the separation. Today, she’s creating a new normal for her family…unapologetically forward.
