ST. LOUIS (AP) – A national project to encourage public conversations about race comes to St. Louis this week.
National Public Radio host Michele Norris started The Race Card Project as an outgrowth of her memoir, which explored racial secrets. The project asks participants to express their thoughts on race in six words.
Norris, a host of NPR’s “All Things Considered,” will discuss the project Thursday at the University of Missouri-St. Louis. The event begins at 7:30 p.m. at the school’s Millennium Student Center.
Tickets are $5 for students of the university and $15 for the general public.
