Who Am I? description:
Fun and educational two-player game that teaches kids to think responsibly about race and diversity
The Who Am I? Race Awareness Game is part of Interactive Diversity Solutions, bringing together art, technology, and education to get people talking about race in an entirely new way. Our goal is to make widespread some of the fascinating anthropological, historical, psychological and sociological insights about race – how race developed, how race is historically changing, and how race affects our everyday lives as it intersects with other categories of identity such as ethnicity, nationality, religion, and gender. By teaching about race in an innovative and engaging way, we are working towards promoting respect, understanding and empathy for all people.
Awarded as one of the top 100 products for parents, teachers and kids by Common Sense Media.

Developed by Dr. Michael Baran, cultural anthropologist at Harvard University, Who Am I? Race Awareness Game is designed to open a dialogue about human physical diversity and racial identification.
