We wanted to provide a quick post with a link back to some of our earlier coverage of the exhibit. First is Jack Broom’s story on the opening of the exhibit, which both tempts and warns readers that they may “walk out the door ‘knowing’ less about race than you thought you knew when you walked in.” For the curious among us the exhibit points out the complexity packed into the word “race” and the need for an exhibit like this one.

The second is Jerry Large’s excellent piece about the importance of the exhibit. Jerry’s column says the exhibit “offers an antidote to haphazard lessons about race” and calls the exhibit a thoughtful exploration of what race is and what it isn’t.
