RACE: Are We So Different?

About this Experience

RACE: Are We So Different?

Context for—and conversations about—race have never been so important. RACE: Are We So Different?—one of the museum’s most powerful exhibit experiences—helps learners of all ages examine the biology, history, and contemporary lived experience of race and racism in the United States.

RACE: Are We So Different? is designed to encourage dialogue about the ways race and racism impact our communities, no matter your background. Don’t miss the chance for your student to join in the conversation.

School Program Opportunity

The Science Museum has partnered with Penumbra Theatre Company to deepen the lessons of this exhibition. Schools can apply to receive Penumbra's classroom-based workshops for their students, where students use theater as a way to reflect, spark dialogue, problem-solve, model solutions, and take action around the issues presented in the exhibit. This program opportunity has a limited number of spaces for middle and high school students, and is available from October 2017 through January 2018. Funded by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation.
