Did you know over four million visitors have seen the RACE website and exhibit? Discover the project everyone is talking about.
Respected authors, authorities and experts addressed issues of the science and history of, and lived experiences with, race in America through a series of free public events.
A Cultural Conversation was an enlightening exchange of thoughts, opinions, and ideas about race in a safe space. For 90 minutes, small groups of friends, families and strangers were able to participate in a dialogue facilitated by local experts.
Duke GRID was a generous sponsor of the RACE Exhibition Cultural Conversations.
On June 10, 2017, the Museum presented a free event celebrating the culturally enriched poetry, music and dance that can join us all together. Featuring nationally known poets and musicians and locally renowned dancers and performers, the day demonstrated how we are more alike than different and that artistic expression can build bridges among people of all racial and ethnic backgrounds.
The exhibition is designed to encourage dialogue about the ways race and racism impact our communities and provides a valuable opportunity to share this conversation with your students.
"RACE: Are We So Different?" was presented locally by A.J. Fletcher Foundation, with additional support from Duke Energy Foundation, City of Raleigh, Wells Fargo, Z. Smith Reynolds Foundation, Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Carolina, and NC Department of Natural and Cultural Resources.
