RACE: Are We So Different?

Take a cultural and scientific look at race throughout history and discover the many reasons we should celebrate our differences and embrace our shared histories (some of which will surprise you).
We all know that people look different. Throughout history, those differences have been a source of strength, community and personal identity. They have also been the basis for discrimination and oppression.
And while those differences are socially and culturally real, contemporary scientific understanding of race and human variation is complex and may challenge how we think about it. RACE: Are We So Different? helps visitors understand what race is and what it is not. It gives them the tools to recognize racial ideas and practices in contemporary American life. — Courtesy of Science Museum of Minnesota website
