Now in Portland, Oregon: RACE: Are We So Different?Posted October 1st, 2012 by Tom
I first learned about RACE: Are We So Different? in advance of my April 2010 work with the Southwest Michigan Black Heritage Society in Kalamazoo, Michigan. The exhibit was about to visit the Kalamazoo Valley Museum that year. My visit was to help spark community-wide conversations around race that folks in Kalamazoo are so committed to. Sharon and I look forward to returning to Kalamazoo in November to participate further in this continuing community conversation.
For my friends in Portland, Oregon (my state) and Baltimore, Maryland (the state where our son, daughter-in-law, and youngest grandchild live), you now have the opportunity to take in this wonderful exhibit. Sharon and I took in this exhibit as part of our research for Gather at the Table. From the website description:
This exhibit will challenge how you think about our differences and our similarities. Don’t miss it!
