understanding-race2The Race Card Project is teaming up with the University of Michigan for a theme semester on Understanding Race. Students, faculty and alumni are encouraged to join in a conversation about race, ethnicity or identity using just six words.


Here, you can see what others have to say and you can share your own observations, experiences, theories, opinions, triumphs, laments or anthems. Six words is often just a start. Click through to read some of the stories behind the six-word essays.

Submit your own six-word story. Share this with your friends or family. Join the conversation.  We are thrilled about this collaboration and hope this space will serve as a place to stoke and capture dialogue. Come back often. The wall is ever changing. The inbox is always open.
