Race Card Project starts conversation in Duluth

Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

DULUTH, MN — Duluth is having a conversation about race and ethnicity using only six words at a time.
It’s called the Race Card Project.

People are asked to narrow down their thoughts, experiences, and observations about race to just six words.

It forces people to be specific and meaningful with their word choice.

Organizers say it’s a way to talk about race and how it impacts the way we live, the work we do, and the lens through which we see the world.

“This is an opportunity for us to really look at ethnicity, to look at culture and more importantly find more ways we have in common versus getting stuck on things we don’t have in common,” said Carl Crawford, City of Duluth Human Rights Officer. “Sitting right across from you could be your next best friend if only you take the time to get to know each other.”

You can find the display at Duluth City Hall.

After that, the cards will be sent to Washington D.C. to be added to the national project.
