APRIL – OCTOBER 2017
GRID co-sponsors RACE: Are We So Different? and Cultural Conversations at the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences.

The Race: Are We So Different? exhibition at the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences looked at race through the lens of science, history, and personal experiences to promote a better understanding of human variation. Interactive exhibit components, historical artifacts, iconic objects, compelling photographs, multimedia presentations, and attractive graphic displays offered visitors to RACE an eye-opening look at its important subject matter.

The Cultural Conversations which were free and open to the public were facilitated by local experts in the fields of race relations and social justice. The format allowed small groups to exchange thoughts, opinions, and ideas as they reflected on their everyday lived experiences with race. Read more about the dialogues
