The Race Experience Update - "The Race Experience" kiosk was utilized 1,010 times (based on records of camera shots) during the week-long project last month. Thank you for participating. Here are a couple of comments from participants:
"....there wasn't a significant amount of change (facial morphing image from one "race" to another), but at the end of the day, I'll still be me, no matter what skin I'm in."
"Very impressive! Excellent and eye-opening. As a teacher, this is an awesome lesson to learn!"
"This is a mind-blowing and a very necessary concept. I would like to share with my middle school students."
When we understand that "race" is not based on biology, but a social and political concept constructed to exclude and exploit some while privileging others, we may more fully embrace the varied and rich cultures, traditions and heritages of our world. Thank you!
