Listing of Let’s Talk About Race programs

 

Ticket prices increase by $5 on Aug. 9.

We all know that people look different. Throughout history, these differences have been a source of strength, community, personal identity, and conflict. What can current science tell us about these variations?

Spend an evening at the Natural History Museum, viewing the exhibition Race: Are We So Different? (through Jan. 1, 2012) and mingling with the exhibit’s curator Mary Jo Arnoldi and Smithsonian scholars Alcione Amos, curator, Anacostia Community Museum; Gabrielle Tayac, historian, American Indian Museum; and Pawan Dhingra, curator, Asian Pacific American Program. Discuss the science behind the way we look and the ideas that shape our cultural identities, and emerge with a fresh understanding and perhaps a new way of thinking about race.

8:00-10:00 p.m.:

Featured Exhibition: RACE: Are We So Different?

Race is a short word with a long history in America. What is race and how are we affected by it every day? Race: Are We So Different? explores the concept of race from scientific, historical, and cultural perspectives. The exhibition offers a powerful look at race and racism, and challenges visitors to ask questions, think critically, and talk about the issue and their own experiences.
