Tonight on PBS: Adoption of an African-American Child of White Jewish Lesbians

PBS’ synopsis of the documentary airing this evening:

Off and Running tells the story of Brooklyn teenager Avery, a track
star with a bright future. She is the adopted African-American
child of white Jewish lesbians. Her older brother is black and
Puerto Rican and her younger brother is Korean. Though it may not
look typical, Avery’s household is like most American homes —
until Avery writes to her birth mother and the response throws her
into crisis. She struggles over her “true” identity, the
circumstances of her adoption and her estrangement from black
culture. Just when it seems as if her life is unraveling, Avery
decides to pick up the pieces and make sense of her identity, with
inspiring results.
