University Community Invited to Participate in the Race Card Project
The Race Card Project was created by National Public Radio special correspondent Michele Norris as a way to foster dialogue. Through the project, individuals are invited to construct and submit six-word essays on the subject of race that describes their thoughts, feelings, observations and/or experiences.
Members of the University community can submit their six-word essays at http://theracecardproject.com/make-your-race-card-su. Essays will be incorporated into the program for the 2015 Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration, “Remember. Celebrate. Act.,” which will take place on Sunday, Jan. 18, 2015, at 5:30 p.m. in the Carrier Dome. Norris will be the keynote speaker for the celebration.
