EXHIBITION AT A GLANCE

National Underground Railroad Freedom Center LogoAdmitting and identifying our own biases can be difficult and something we don’t know how to do. And yet two decades of scientific research has persuasively demonstrated that all of us harbor implicit bias even if we hold no explicit prejudice. Our society is saturated with attitudes and stereotypes about social groups and people encompassing a range of intersectional identities. Over time these feelings and beliefs become more ingrained.  The Implicit Bias exhibit offers opportunities to attend to bias and other forms of discrimination, as well as to explore recent debates in the realm of implicit bias research. The exhibit opens to the public at an opportune time — a moment when the nation as a whole is wrestling with the persistent challenge of race, class, and gender relations as well as with the changing nature of prejudice and discrimination. The exhibit will offer visitors an experience that is surprising, stimulating and illuminating — one they won’t soon forget.

The Implicit Bias exhibit was created by the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center.
