Michele Norris on “Our Hidden Conversations” on Race and Identity

In 2010, then NPR host Michele Norris started “The Race Card Project.” Looking for honest conversations on race and identity, she left postcards wherever she went with the prompt “Race. Your Thoughts. Six Words. Please Send.” She got half a million response over 12 years, including You’re Pretty for a Black girl. White privilege, enjoy it, earned it. Lady, I don’t want your purse. Urban living has made me racist. I’m only Asian when it’s convenient.

Her new book, Our Hidden Conversations, reveals what Americans told her, the conversations it sparked and they tell us about race and racism and our complicated identities.
