“Race” is a short word with a long history. Yet, most of what we think about race is based on myth, folklore, or assumptions unsupported by genetics or biology. No one is free of misunderstandings about race, but it doesn’t have to be that way. Join us for an eye-opening look at human nature a...

This is big, Quad Cities. The Putnam Museum is preparing for the Jan. 26 opening of a new exhibit titled, "RACE: Are We So Different?" Visitors will explore race through these three lenses: the history of race; the science of race; and the recent experience of race in the U.S. Volunteers are needed to serve as hosts and discussion facilitators during the exhibit’s four-month run.

The Chicago History Museum is often overlooked because it isn’t down by the lake in the center of town like the Art Institute, the Adler Planetarium, the Field Museum, and the Shed Aquarium.

Through July 15th, the museum is housing a very special exhibition like no other. It’s called Race: Are We So Different?, and it examines the subject from a unique perspective, the American Anthropological Association in collaboration with the Science Museum of Minnesota. The Race exhibit includes many interactive features for a “contemporary scientific understanding of human variation is beginning to challenge ‘racial’ differences, and even question the very concept of race.” One section of the exhibit even explores the role of race in mascots, with a specific look at Chief Illini. http://www.illinoishomepage.net/ciliving/hidden-treasures-in-the-windy-city/963695068

The exhibition — fully titled “Race: Are We So Different?” — debuted at the Science Museum of Minnesota in 2007, just ahead of the country electing its first black president. Since then the United States has witnessed the systematic disparagement of that president, the emergence of the Black Lives Matter movement and the successor president finding moral equivalency between white supremacists and those who protested their presence in Charlottesville, Va.

In other words, even if some of the show’s timelines stop in 2005 or ’06, the exhibition feels fresh. The facts may be old-school, but the truths are au courant. http://www.chicagotribune.com/entertainment/museums/ct-ent-race-exhibit-history-museum-1109-story.html

With the timely “Race: Are We So Different?” the Chicago History Museum aims to show visitors that what we think of as race is more of a social construct than a scientific one.

"The feedback that we have is that this material with a science base has provided a unique opportunity for people from all walks of life to understand the ways that race operates in this country, both obvious and insidious. “Race: Are We So Different?” tells us that our racial categories have little biological significance, but have been used and abused throughout our nation’s history largely to privilege some, while blocking others from a life of fulfilled experience." http://ow.ly/FRCn30fNDhv

One thing we know for certain is that a country divided like this cannot be the inclusive democracy that it once aspired to be.
