Science and Race: History, Use, and Abuse

This free series of five evening classes brought together over 25 internationally recognized experts from diverse backgrounds for an in-depth and powerful exploration intent on providing discussion tools to aid people in examining their beliefs about race, science, and justice. Panels examined race through the lenses of anthropology, biology, genetics, sociology, philosophy, and law, and collection workshops presented the Samuel Morton human cranial collection, reading materials, and other resources.
