As part of the Open Society Institute-Baltimore’s yearlong “Talking About Race” series, WYPR’s Maryland Morning and The Stoop Storytelling Series are collecting personal stories about race. These stories will be shared below and some will be told on Across the Divide: Stories About Race in Baltimore, a radio series on Maryland Morning culminating in a live evening of storytelling produced by The Stoop Storytelling Series.
Tell us about events in your life that taught you something about race, events that laid the foundation of how you think about race, or ones that made you rethink it. Or experiences that shifted your understanding of race in more subtle ways. Some of the stories will be funny. The point: lets break a hugely complicated subject into life-size pieces by sharing our stories about race in our community.
