Race Card Project, Martin Luther King, Jr. Celebration | Earlham College Skip to Content

Monday, January 21 – Friday, February 1, 2019 (Online submissions)
Thursday, January 31 (Runyan Table)

As part of the 2109 Martin Luther King, Jr. Celebration all members of the Earlham community are invited to participate in the Race Card Project.

The Race Card Project was created by National Public Radio special correspondent Michele Norris as a way to foster dialogue. It aims to hear, experience, and collect the real discussions about race, culture and identity on campus. Students, faculty, staff, and alumni are invited to express their thoughts about race, cultural identity, or an evolving America in six-word essays.

You can submit your essay online at https://goo.gl/forms/KrZg5wwMZXqrOTAp2 between Monday, January 21 and Friday, February 1, or complete a postcard at a table in the Runyan Lobby on Thursday, January 31, 11:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. Postcards and online submissions will be posted in Runyan sometime during the month of February.

Earlham College, an independent, residential college, aspires to provide the highest-quality undergraduate education in the liberal arts, including the sciences, shaped by the distinctive perspectives of the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers).
