How to Submit Your 6 Words About Race
The University of Michigan is hosting a theme semester called Understanding Race. As part of that effort, you are invited to participate in a little exercise. Think about the word RACE. Now think about how you would express your thoughts about RACE and ethnicity in just SIX WORDS. That’s right. Your experiences, thoughts, triumphs, laments or anthem expressed in just 6 words. Please include your name, location and email so we can archive your 6-word essay and alert you if it is posted on the website for The Race Card Project.™
