  • This event has passed.

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.”

Norris will be in conversation with Laura Coates, CNN’s Chief Legal Analyst and anchor of “Laura Coates Live,” and the host of “The Laura Coates Show” on SiriusXM.

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