African American History Museum Launches Portal to Help Americans Discuss Race

The National Museum of African American History and Culture in D.C. has launched a new online portal to facilitate conversations about race and racism in America.

The “Talking About Race” project collects more than 100 multimedia tools, including videos, scholarly articles and exercises to help educators, parents and others develop the language to have productive conversations, according to a museum press release.

“We hope that people will use this site to become more comfortable about engaging in honest dialogue and self-reflection,” Spencer Crew, the museum’s interim director, said in a statement.

Talking About Race, which was in development before recent protests over the police-related death George Floyd, draws upon decades of collective research conducted by the museum’s education staff and incorporates insights gleaned from historians and activists such as Bishop Desmond Tutu.

The project, which is financially supported by the Atlantic Philanthropies, also includes resources on the historical foundations of race and the ideology of whiteness, among other topics.
