20 Questions

A mobile application that facilitates conversations between students of different racial backgrounds


In American culture, there is a huge stigma associated with the subject of race. People either avoid talking about the issue or have tense dialogues that don’t encourage further discussion of racial inequalities in our society.

20 Questions improves these exchanges for college students who want to talk and learn about race. The application creates a safe environment by facilitating an anonymous conversation between two students of different racial backgrounds. A safe space is essential because it allows people to talk openly and listen to each other. Students have the opportunity to express themselves, share their racial experiences, and potentially create meaningful connections with their peers.
