OUR HIDDEN CONVERSATIONS What Americans Really Think About Race and Identity

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Michele Norris and a Full Cast

Contemporary Culture • 17.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2024

Peabody Award-winning journalist Michele Norris and a full cast deliver a must-listen performance of Norris's riveting examination of race in America. Based on 12 years of submissions to Norris's Race Card Project--six words about race from over half-a-million people--the audiobook shifts between Norris's clear, warm, thoughtful commentary and participants' contributions, all delivered by a talented group of narrators. We hear some expanded stories and many six-word submissions. "Black wears me wherever I go." "'But I voted for Barack Obama." "White Privilege. Enjoy it. Earned it." "Lady, I don't want your purse." "Colors run together. Why not people?" The result is painful, consoling, infuriating, funny, enlightening. As Norris says, "There's more work to be done." Let's do it. A.C.S.
