The new web portal, “Talking About Race,” was launched as a way to help everyone, including families and communities, talk about racism and racial identity “and the way these forces shape every aspect of society,” according to a statement by the museum.
The “Talking About Race” portal provides resources for information and guided discussions, as well as videos, specific questions, and even role-playing exercises to help people “become more comfortable about engaging in honest dialogue and self-reflection,” according to Crew.
The portal is divided into eight subjects, including topics on the historical foundations of race and being anti-racist. The portal is an extension of the work that has been done by the NMAAHC, including published research from activists, historians, and other public figures such as Brené Brown, Robin DiAngelo, Ibram X Kendi, Audre Lorde, Bishop Desmond Tutu, and many more.
