The Race Card Project


MJR&L worked with Professor Martha Jones to bring NPR’s Michele Norris’ Race Card Project to Michigan Law. The Race Card Project invites participants to share a six-word description of their view of race, ethnicity, and cultural identity written on index cards or online forms in order to foster additional discussions on those topics. MJR&L members advertised the event on campus and handed out cards to MLaw students.
