An exhibit to create a space for conversations on racism opened Wednesday at the Saskatchewan Science Centre. “Behind Racism” provides visitors with the chance to understand and learn about racism.
The Saskatchewan Science Centre Chief Operating Officer Ryan Holota said the exhibit was built by the Ontario Science Centre in partnership with the Canadian Race Relations Foundation.
“The exhibition does not try to explain away racism with science in any way, shape or form,” said Holota. “What it does do is … encourage us to think about the way that we think. Actually, it goes into the roots of racism … it also talks about real stories of racism in Canada, both from individuals as well as systemic racism.”
