One year ago today, Code Switch launched with the post "How Code-Switching Explains The World." Last June, we released our first Code Switch visitors survey to query our users about what they were seeing, what they liked, and what they liked less. We're long overdue for a follow-up. So here it is: our second Code Switch visitors survey. We'd appreciate it very much if you took a few minutes to share your thoughts with us.

Over the past year, we expanded our coverage of historic moments from the civil rights movement, notably with efforts such as @TodayIn1963 and stories such as "Why A Proper Lady Found Herself Behind Bars." We launched our regular Word Watch feature, bringing you the interesting histories and etymologies behind common words and phrases — "crib," "racism," the "grandfather clause," and many more. We polled 1,500 Latino Americans to bring you a series of stories on the many different experiences of Latinos in the US. We examined what we could learn from "The Whitest Historically Black College In America." We partnered with you on a month-long exploration of interracial and cross-cultural romance. And we brought you searing conversations on serious issues.

So now we're asking you how we're doing, and where you'd like us to go next. And as always, don't hesitate to send us feedback any time of the year through email at codeswitch (at) NPR (dot) org.

Thanks in advance for taking the time to respond to our survey. And as always, thanks for reading and listening. Here's to the next year of exploring race, ethnicity and culture.
