On November 16, WURD president and CEO Sara Lomax-Reese will moderate “Violence and Race,” the final discussion in the Penn Museum Public Classroom series, “Science and Race: History, Use, and Abuse.” CLICK HERE TO REGISTER (FREE)
From the Penn Museum:
WHAT IS THIS THING CALLED “RACE?”
Scientists agree that many common assumptions about race are wrong—yet the consequences of racism are very real.
This fall, the Penn Museum brings together more than two dozen internationally recognized experts from diverse backgrounds for an in-depth and powerful exploration about race, science, and justice in a free series of five evening classes geared to adults and young adults (14 and above).
Race is not a scientific concept, yet racism is real—a powerful social idea that gives people differential access to opportunities and resources. In the United States, violence has been racialized, as seen in crime statistics and reinforced by news media.
