NPR’s Michele Norris Celebrates Nashville’s Civil Rights Collection

February 13, 2014

National Public Radio correspondent Michele Norris visited the Nashville Public Library to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the library’s Civil Rights room and collection. A crowd of approximately 200 people gathered as Norris led a discussion on race, class, and civil rights in post-Obama America. She also talked about her new book, The Grace of Silence, and read excerpts from her online project, the Race Card Wall, a collection of six-word postcards submitted by people from around the world that share different experiences, questions, hopes, dreams, laments, and observations about race and identity.
