Statement regarding Philando Castile sign

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
July 21, 2016

“We posted a sign at the entrance of the RACE: Are We So Different exhibit to acknowledge the conversations occurring in the community after Philando Castile’s tragic death. It became apparent that the sign was being misconstrued and had the potential to divide the community. That was not our intent so we took the sign down.

“Conversations around race are challenging and must continue. We must recognize our common humanity and work together to heal going forward,” said Kim Ramsden, Director of Communications, Science Museum of Minnesota.
