Race is a powerful concept that shapes how one sees others and is seen by others, yet the public poorly understands what race is, and inherent assumptions and misconceptions about race affect scientific and scholarly research. To clarify what race is and what race isn't, the American Anthropological Association (AAA), with its sections, members and other science and humanities organizations, including the Science Museum of Minnesota, developed an interactive museum exhibition, RACE: Are We So Different?, that allows visitors to learn the history of race, the role of science in that history and the subtle and obtrusive expressions of race and racism in institutions and daily lives.
