Title

Understanding race: Are we so different? (Website)

Description

This is a project by the American Anthropological Association that looks at race through three lenses: History, Science, and Lived Experience with videos and interactive timelines. It also has a Bibliography, Glossary and Resources (for families, teachers and researchers).

Current science tells us we share a common ancestry and the differences among people we see are natural variations, results of migration, marriage and adaptation to different environments. How does this fit with the idea of race? Looking through the eyes of history, science and lived experience, the RACE Project explains differences among people and reveals the reality – and unreality – of race. The story of race is complex and may challenge how we think about race and human variation, about the differences and similarities among people.
