Conversations on Race/Ethnicity and Identity
The stories of ordinary Americans are captured in census data. These data are essential for telling us how fast we are growing, how we live, calling out our successes and challenges, and painting the mosaic of what we look like. We all have a story to tell. For many Americans, our identity is expressed, in part, through race/ethnicity. Although categorizations in the decennial census do not fully reflect America’s racial/ethnic diversity, census data provide an opportunity, for some, to share their race/ethnic story.
What is your census story? How does your story compare to the experiences of other Americans? Check out the “NY Times: A Conversation on Race” short film series documenting the intersection between race/ethnicity and identity in America here.
