Despite electing Barack Obama as president, do we truly live in a post-racial world? Last year, NPR’s Norris set off to explore the “hidden conversation on race.” What started as a report on our country’s evolving attitudes toward race turned into an intense personal journey through her own family history and racial identity. Norris offers her thoughts and observations and shares what it was like to explore the “things left unsaid” by her own family.
