Ali Center to host exhibit on race and human variation

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) – An exhibition that looks at race from biological, cultural and historical perspectives and challenges visitors to think about race and human variation is coming to the Muhammad Ali Center.

“RACE: Are We So Different?” opens to the public on September 24th, and is produced by the American Anthropological Association with assistance from the Science Museum of Minnesota.

Ali Center spokeswoman Jeanie Kahnke says the topic of race has become increasingly significant and timely in recent months. She hopes the exhibit will “spur interest in learning more about the perceptions and realities of race” and encourage community dialogue.

In tandem with the exhibit, the Ali Center will facilitate “Talking Circles” for employees and co-workers that let them discuss race in a non-confrontational way.
