Kickoff of 400th exhibit and The Race Card Project

Tuesday, 03 September, 2019 @ 04:00 PM - 04:30 PM | Cost:free

On Tuesday, Sept. 3, at 4 p.m. two programs will be launched during an event at Booth Library.

The EIU community will be invited to share their “six words” as part of The Race Card ProjectTM at Booth Library. The program is sponsored by Making Excellence Inclusive, the Office of Inclusion and Academic Engagement, and the Pine Honors College.

The nationally acclaimed Race Card Project, which began in 2010, encourages people to condense their observations and experiences about race into one sentence with just six words.

Patrons are encouraged to share their “six words” on provided comment cards and post them on the wall in the library’s Marvin Foyer from Sept. 3 through Oct. 11. The official kickoff will be at 4 p.m. Sept. 3, in conjunction with EIU’s commemorations of the 400th, a series of events evaluating the impact of slavery in America.
