      I want to share a discussion thread that I have had since our 2006 SACC meeting with all of you SACC-ers and other interested parties. It seems that the AAA/Ford Foundation Race Project is going ahead with the most extensive national effort for public educational outreach from anthropologists and anthropology in memory. Beginning in 2007, there will be a museum based educational display on race and racism travelling across the country to major cities. See the AAA website for details, but basically there will be a very large exhibit for our largest cities, and a significant but smaller exhibit for 15 other cities. The principals running this for AAA are Yolande Moses and Peggy Overby of AAA and they are interested in community college participation, though still a bit hazy on plan details for implementation. At this time, I am asking each of you:
      Consider what your best andmost effective teaching materials are on race, and send them to me by email or mail for inclusion on the Race Project web site and for the data base for the Anthropology Education Committee, for which I am your representative. My addresses are: mark.lewine@... Mark Lewine 2900 Community College Ave. Cleve. OH 44115. Ann Kaupp, Leonard Lieberman, and Cynthia Ninnavaggi I know have outstanding materials, and we need more from the rest of you. In the future I will share updates on how you

      This will be a great addition to the 2006 program.

      I agree. You (and SACC) have made wonderful inroads on developing this. Will the panel at AAA be a paper session? If so and if participants agree, we have interest in publishing the papers on the project website. Also, SACC members will be important resources/experts for community dialogues and related activities should we receive the NEH funding. We hope that Cleveland's Natural History Museum is among the first to get the 5,000 sq ft exhibit; I know Bruce has contacted the Science Museum of Minnesota about hosting the exhibit and it looks promising.

      Thank you for all you do.

      That is great about the session. We will work with SACC to make sure that we get the best of the materials on the website in both our scholars and in our resources section. We are in the process of developing the brochure for the Museums. The one in Cleveland is at the top of our list.

      Subject: Fw: AECPANEL06ABSTRACT

      A couple of items related to the Race Project:

      1. I have organized an invited panel session at next AAA on race and class issues at community colleges for the Anthropology Educaton Committee, of which I am a member, with Catherine Emihovich and Kathy Borman of the AEC, Philippe Bourgois, Cynthia Ninivaggi and myself from SACC. Laura Nader will be an informal participant from the floor. We were already thinking about doing this when I got your suggestion about doing somethink about race and cc's.

      2. I reported on the Race Project at our SACC meeting in Merida. They stand ready to be supportive any way that we can, including educational outreach plans at each city that we have a SACC member.

      3. Bruce Lattimer, Director of the Cleveland Museum of Natural History, emailed me twice with continued interest in working out something for a Cleveland site visit and selection for the Project.
