Michele Norris

Jan 18, 2024 • 7:00 pm ET

In the twelve years since Peabody and Emmy Award-winning journalist Michele Norris first prompted people to share their thoughts on race in just six words, over half a million people have submitted their stories to The Race Card Project. Shocking in their depth and revealing the full spectrum of emotions, the stories offer a 360-degree view of how Americans see themselves and one another.

Our Hidden Conversations: What Americans Really Think About Race and Identity is a compilation of these stories, along with richly reported essays and photographs that provide a window into America during a tumultuous era. The book offers an honest, if sometimes uncomfortable, conversation about race and identity, permitting us to eavesdrop on deep-seated thoughts, private discussions, and long submerged memories. Our Hidden Conversations reminds us that even during times of great division, honesty, grace, and a willing ear can provide a bridge toward empathy and understanding.

Norris is a columnist for The Washington Post Opinion Section, the host of the Audible Original Podcast “Your Mama’s Kitchen,” and former co-host of NPR’s “All Things Considered.”

All books will be pre-signed by the author. A book signing will follow the event for those who would like their book personalized.
