RACE: Are We So Different?
March 29–October 27, 2014
R.P. Simmons Family Gallery
RACE: Are we so different? is a groundbreaking exploration of the experience of living with race in America. The exhibition weaves together personal stories of living with race along with expert discussions of the history of race as a concept, the role that science has played in that history, and emerging research that challenges the foundations of what we perceive as race. Interactive multimedia components, historic artifacts, iconic objects, and compelling photographs offer visitors an eye-opening look at a topic that is fundamental to our shared human experience.
Developed by the American Anthropological Association in collaboration with the Science Museum of Minnesota, RACE: Are we so different? is the first nationally traveling exhibition to tell the story of race from biological, cultural, and historic points of view. These diverse perspectives merge into an unprecedented examination of race and racism in the United States.
A robust schedule of programming in support of RACE: Are We So Different? is planned throughout the run of the exhibition. For more information on programming or to inquire about collaborating with the museum, please contact Special Projects Manager Ashley Kunkle at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Local support for this exhibition is provided by Dominion Foundation and EQT Foundation.
