NPR Special Series: The Race Card Project: Six-Word Essays

“NPR’s partnership with The Race Card Project explores a different kind of conversation about race. We ask people to think about their experiences, observations, triumphs, laments, theories or anthem about race or cultural identity. Then they take those thoughts and distill them down to one six-word sentence.

Thousands of people have shared their six-word stories and every so often NPR Host/Special Correspondent Michele Norris will dip into the trove of stories to explore issues surrounding race and cultural identity for “Morning Edition.”

You can find hundreds of submissions and submit your own stories atwww.theracecardproject.com
