Next week, we’re officially launching the TalkingRace project, and we expect to get some press. For the project, we’re working with sociologist Dr. JeffriAnne Wilder, and were asking four questions: When were you born? Where were you raised? How do you self-identify with race? And what was your first experience with race?

We’re collecting the stories on our website, and I hope you’ll consider anonymously sharing your experience. I thinks this project has the potential to get to the heart of the race problem in America, and start a real constructive conversation -- but to do it, I’ll need your help.

You can hear and contribute race stories at
