The PBS series, “Race: The Power of an Illusion” explores “race in society, science and history.” Here’s a link to the online companion to the California Newsreel’s 3-part documentary.
The exercise, “Sorting People: Can You Tell Somebody’s Race by Looking at Them?,” asks “How easy is it to group people into ‘races’ based on appearance? What about using individual traits? Does everybody classify the same way?”
Try your hand at “sorting” individuals and see if it matches how people think of themselves. Reflect on how we tend to sort people by physical traits.
