Stop by the Diag to view a display of cards submitted by U-M students, faculty and staff as part of The Race Card Project. Volunteers will be on hand to help you to make a contribution to the display, and NPR's Michele Norris will visit the installation from 12:30-1 p.m.
Norris started The Race Card Project in 2010 to help foster a candid dialogue about race. The project encourages students and faculty to join in a conversation about race, ethnicity or identity using just six words. Since then people from all over the world have submitted, both on the website and through postcards, their 6 word essays about race.
