Think about the word Race. How would you summarize your thoughts, experiences or observations about race into one six-word sentence? Fill out our Google Form and tell us.
The Montana Race Project gathers 6-word 'essays' on race from Montana residents in an effort to craft a unique and thoughtful narrative around diversity in our state. This year the Mansfield Library Diversity Committee will be collecting and curating responses for the University of Montana's DiverseU event on November 2-3. This format stems from the story of Ernest Hemingway responding to a challenge: What is the fewest number of words needed to write a story? "Six", he replied:
"For sale: baby shoes. Never worn."
Inspired by the Race Card Project, The Montana Race Project was created in 2015 by Journalism Professor Kathy Weber-Bates and her students.
