Race is the first national exhibition to dive into the concept of race from the biological, cultural and historical points of view and offers an unprecedented look at race and racism in the United States. It points out the obvious . . that people are different . . . and these differences have been a source of community, strength and personal identity, as well as a basis for discrimination and oppression at times driven by misinformation and fear. Race has historically been used to describe differences and justify inequality and even genocide, but this exhibit touches on contemporary science that has begun to question the concept of race and how our differences came to be through evolution.
