The award-winning PBS documentary series, RACE: The Power of an Illusion is coming to the Chaska Community Center Auditorium. Join us for one or all of the episodes as we engage with the idea of race and how it came to be. A group discussion will follow each episode.
Thurs., Oct. 10: “The Difference Between Us” examines race in the context of biology. A dozen students from different backgrounds compare their DNA to each how they compare genetically.
Thurs., Oct. 24: “The Story We Tell” takes a look at the history of race. How did ancient peoples categorize “others”? Could race be a more recent invention that ties into the development of the United States?
Thurs., Nov. 7: “The House We Live In” is a look into how policies and institutions in the United States have advantaged some groups at the expense of others.
