RACE: Are We So Different?

RACE: Are We So Different? is a powerful interactive exhibit that encourages audiences to explore the biology, history, and everyday impact of race.

“This experience has transformed the way I look at my own institution and has given me many tools to begin changing many of the inequalities I have observed during my work. I will also bring this work to the institutions that I sit on boards of to help start a process of reflection on equity/access issues.” — Science Museum of Minnesota Program Participant
