Grace Kao's presentation is based on her book (co-authored with Kara Joyner and Kelly Stamper Balistreri on the patterns of interracial friendships and romantic relationships among individuals in adolescence and young adulthood. They find that while students prefer to befriend people of the same race, school composition has significant effects on the likelihood of friendship and romance across racial lines. Moreover, early contact (both in terms of their friendships and their school racial composition) affects the likelihood of interracial romance and friendship more than a decade later.
