The Human RACE: One Species, Many Opinions
| Grades 7-12
The Human RACE Teacher's Guide and Materials
Throughout history, variation within the human species has been a source of community strength and personal identity. It has also been the basis for discrimination and oppression. Today, geneticists and anthropologists are proving that all humans share ancestry in Africa. In the light of these scientific breakthroughs, discuss with our Education team the idea that "[Racism] is not about how you look, it is about how people assign meaning to how you look." (Robin G.D. Kelley, Historian) Students will be asked to participate in activities and discuss ideas that may challenge how they think about race and human variation.
