WRAL-TV has put together a half-hour program inspired by an compelling exhibit at a local museum. “Race: Are We So Different?” is currently on exhibit at the the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences in Raleigh, and now a half-hour program with the same name will air on WRAL-TV on Wednesday, June 28th at 7pm.
The WRAL special does not rehash the subject of race but rather comes at it from different angles. From a scientific angle: Is race in our genes or in our minds? There are historic and artistic angles as well—art and race, cultural perspectives, and personal stories.
It’s a special that just might make people think in different ways.
The team at WRAL had been anxiously awaiting the arrival of the Race: Are We So Different exhibit for months. Beginning in April, when the exhibit opened, WRAL News did a series of stories exposing viewers to the provocative, acclaimed project.
Wednesday, June 28th, the latest effort airs on WRAL at 7:00pm. Created by WRAL-TV Specialty Reporter Scott Mason and WRAL-TV News Photographer 2 Robert Meikle, the WRAL News Special Race: Are We So Different shares the voices of people young and old, scientists, artists and historians discussing race from their perspective.

The program will be repeated on FOX 50 Sunday, July 9th at 5:00pm.
