This Thursday, Nov. 29, 2012 photo shows National Public Radio host and journalist Michelle Norris in her home in Washington. Two years ago, Norris was embarking on a tour for her book about her family's racial secrets and wanted to find a way to engage and learn from her audiences. So she printed up postcards asking people to express their thoughts on race in just six words. Twelve thousand postcards later, the Race Card Project has created a new type of discussion about race in America. (AP Photo/Cliff Owen)
