RACE: Are We So Different Opening Night

August 3, 2018 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Sloan Museum
1221 E Kearsley St
Flint, MI 48503

We are pleased to announce that the Sloan Museum has been selected to be the next host of the RACE: Are We So Different? exhibit. Most recently, the exhibit was housed at the Chicago Historical Museum, and in 2013 it was at the U-M Museum of Natural History.

Along with community partners, we will launch a community conversation about race and racism in the United States, when the RACE: Are We So Different? exhibit opens at Sloan Museum. RACE will encourage visitors to explore the science, history, and everyday impact of race. The exhibit will coincide with a series of community events hosted by UM-Flint at Sloan and at community locations.

Local funding for the exhibit comes from the Community Foundation of Greater Flint, the Ruth Mott Foundation, and the W. K. Kellogg Foundation, through the University of Michigan-Flint’s “Flint Truth and Action Partnership Project.”

The RACE exhibit is part of a larger public education project by the American Anthropological Association in collaboration with the Science Museum of Minnesota, and funded by the Ford Foundation and the National Science Foundation. In addition to the exhibit, the initiative includes a website, educational materials, and conferences designed to share research and information with the public.

We hope you can join us on August 3rd.  Space is limited.  Please register by emailing Jenee’ Price at jeneep@umflint.edu.

If you would like more information or if you would like to be involved with the Flint Truth and Action Partnership Project, please contact Jenee Price at jeneep@umflint.edu.
