Year of Proof: "Making and Unmaking Race"

Media Title

Is there such a thing in humans called race? Since the emergence of biology and anthropology, scientists have developed categories for all living things, including humans. But what can the categorization of humans tell us? Explore the history of race in this display, which features specimens from the notorious Morton Collection of crania, which were once used as justification for 19th-century belief about racial hierarchy.
