undistinguished americans: life stories of everyday people
Undistinguished Americans is a project dedicated to the collection of life stories of everyday people in order to create community and promote real human connections that go beyond status updates, online profiles, texts, instant messages, and emails. This is an attempt to see beyond black and white, to move beyond first impressions, to see what we have in common with each other and to understand different perspectives. This is the story of your friends, family, neighbors, enemies and total strangers. This is the opportunity to get to know one another.
For people interested in participating, the only thing we request is a willingness to share your story. We’re asking you to allow yourself to talk openly and candidly about yourself and your life. The experience of telling and listening is equally, if not greater in importance than the outcome of our conversation. Since sensitive topics may arise, anonymity is guaranteed if that is your preference.
