  Let's Talk About Race
share page:

Talking about race and racial differences isn’t easy. Scientific understanding of human variation is beginning to challenge “racial” differences, and even question the very concept of race. We invite you to explore these ideas as you experience the RACE exhibit.

Where do we come from? This question intrigues all of us. Join our Curator of Anthropology Dr. John Johnson for a discussion of the latest scientific research of how studies of the origin of Native Americans shed light on the human family tree.

Members $8; non-members $10. [ONLINE TICKETING]

Durrow’s debut novel, chosen by Barbara Kingsolver for the Bellwether Prize for Literature of Social Change, discusses how through story we can break down divides between different races and cultures.
