In conjunction with the publication of the issue, National Geographic has also launched a social media campaign, #IDefineMe, calling on individuals to share their experience with race and what it means to them. Through photos, videos or text across Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, the online community is encouraged to respond to the call-to-action: Science defines you by your DNA. Society defines you by the color of your skin. How do you define yourself? #IDefineMe⏩ Additionally, "America Inside Out with Katie Couric," a documentary television series covering some of the most complicated and consequential questions in American culture today, premieres April 11 on National Geographic.
