“How I Learned about the One Drop Rule: We want to share YOUR story too! Send us an email with ‘One-Drop Rule’ in the subject line. We’ll send you instructions for recording your video and sending it back to us. We’ll edit it with our standard content, and keep you posted on when we’ll publish it. Feel free to forward this to anyone you think will be interested in sharing their story. If you don’t want to share your thoughts in a video, feel free to send a written response.”
