American Anthropological Association Launches New Educational Web Site on Race
The American Anthropological Association has debuted a web site and a
traveling exhibit for college and university museums entitled, “Race: Are We So Different?”
The project, which has been in development for more than five years, offers a history of race relations in the United States, examines human differences, and gives insights into race relations in this country.
The three main themes of the exhibit and web site are:
* The concept of race has changed over time and is shaped by the most
powerful force in society;
* Race is a cultural phenomenon rather than a biological one; and
* Race and racism remain embedded in our culture.
