How We Talk About Race: What word choice says about identity
Mar 17, 2015

Michele Norris’ new Race Card Project encourages people to send in a postcard with six words that deal with how we talk about race and identity.

Norris joined MPR News’ Kerri Miller along with Vox race, law and politics reporter Jenee Desmond Harris, to discuss the project and examine what words we use when we talk about race.
