- NC Race Project website The RACE project has been visited online and as a museum exhibit by millions of people to date. Given the overwhelming response by the public and community stakeholders to the exhibit tour in North Carolina, the N.C. Department of Natural and Cultural Resources (NCDNCR) and the Burroughs Wellcome Fund are working to increase the reach of the RACE exhibit (called RACE 2.0) as a means for greater RACE related conversations, teaching and learning experiences, and issue analysis/awareness.

- Race: Are We So Different? In this textbook sponsored by the American Anthropological Association, students learn about the history of race and racism in the United States, dispel myths about biological determinism through accessible and in depth discussions of human variation, and explore the implications of race and racism in our world today. Excerpts from scholars such as Nell Irvin Painter, Audrey Smedley, and Joe Watkins provide critical insights throughout the text while full color images and accessible language bring the content to life and interactive virtual content (https://understandingrace.org/) helps to supplement the text. This is a must-have resource for educators discussing race and racism in today’s classrooms.
- Superior In this beautifully written book, author Angela Saini digs into the good, the bad, and the ugly history of race science in the United States. With chapters devoted to concepts such as human biodiversity and social constructs such as caste and class, readers walk away with a deep understanding of why race isn’t a simple black and white issue. And science, well, that’s not so black-and-white, either, according to Saini. Read or listen to the audiobook for a closer look at how science is constructed and how it perpetuates bias. Check out this WIRED interview with the author for further insights.
