Program Description:

Too often discussions about race are avoided out of fear of offending someone or creating uncomfortable situations. The Museum of Science & History and 904WARD invite you to join us for Cultural Conversations: Race Cards, a program designed to facilitate respectful dialogue around race. With the use of friendly moderators and Race Cards, this program hopes to create thought-provoking and open conversation about race, identity, and social issues in a welcoming environment. Guests will also have the opportunity to tour the Legacy of Lynching exhibit during the program. Spots are limited, please at themosh.org.
