Kiosk lets you 'live' in a different skin02/08/2013
New this year for UA's annual Rethinking Race: Black, White and Beyond series is the Race Experience Kiosk. It is designed to help visitors consider race, racism and identity in a new light.
Look for the Race Experience Kiosk in Bierce Library through Tuesday, Feb. 12.
With the Race Experience Kiosk, visitors can see themselves in a different skin. They can change their race to Black, White, Asian, Hispanic, Middle Eastern and Indian, then share favorite pictures via e-mail.
This museum-quality exhibit has software that provides a personal, one-of-a-kind race morphing experience. The kiosk creates an environment that encourages discussions about race and our deep-rooted beliefs, misconceptions and biases.
