Race exhibition opens at McWane Science Center

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) – 2013 marks the 50-year anniversary of the civil rights movement in Birmingham.

An exhibit called Race: Are We So Different? opened on Wednesday at the McWane Science Center.

The exhibit features interactive activities, as well as photographs, films and artifacts.

“This is especially appropriate at [McWane Science Center] because there are three components to the exhibition,” Amy Templeton, the President and CEO of the McWane Science Center said. “One is the science of race. Second is the history of racial relations. Then, third is the race in contemporary society.”

The exhibit runs through September 2, 2013.
