About The Exhibit
This exhibit is the first in a series of events designed to inspire community conversations, presented by the University of Michigan-Flint and the Community Foundation of Greater Flint. The RACE: Are We So Different? exhibition explores three primary themes:
The science of human variation, and where current scientific understanding is inconsistent with popular notions of race.
The history of the idea of race, with an emphasis on the role of science in shaping the concept of race.
The contemporary experience of race and racism in the United States, and the often-invisible ways race and racism have infiltrated laws, customs, and institutions.
