        America After Ferguson: The Race Card Project

        Learn about The Race Card Project, in which people share thoughts and experiences about race or cultural identity using only six words, in this media gallery from America After Ferguson. Michele Norris, the NPR correspondent who started the project, talks about the context of these submissions. For example, Norris explains why one woman from Wisconsin chose “I’m afraid of most black men” as her six words, while an elderly white woman chose “I smile at young black men” as hers. In the town hall segment, submissions include “Race. Not a choice. An attitude.” whose author explains is consistent with the advice he gives his two biracial sons.
