Race: Are We So Different?
“Science traces early human migration from Africa using current research to re-evaluate widely held beliefs about the origins of physical attributes, such as skin color or resistance to disease. History traces racism from the pre-Columbus era to modern genetic studies. Lived Experience features voices and images of people who share their experiences of race, identity, and racism.” That is the theme of a new exhibit at COSI that explores the science, history and everyday issues of race and racism. On this hour of “All Sides,” we’ll explore the topic of racism in modern science and society.
