University of Notre Dame Debuts Online Archive of Students’ Stories Relating to Race

The Klau Center for Civil and Human Rights in the Keough School of Global Affairs at the University of Notre Dame in Indiana has launched a new initiative to collect stories relating to race and encourage constructive dialogue at the university. All members of the Notre Dame community have been encouraged to participate in the project by telling their stories.

Housed within University Archives, participants’ personal stories will be available in their entirety for research purposes. A curated collection of abridged narratives are now available publicly through the With Voices True website, providing classrooms and other groups a tool to spur constructive conversation around race.

Dory Mitros Durham, associate director of the Klau Center, stated that “it seemed to us that we had arrived at a moment when there was a renewed openness to talking about race and its implications in American society today. We believed that people are ready to talk and ready to listen. We wanted to set up a mechanism to let that happen — to tell and to hear real stories that give content to the concepts of race and racial identity.”
