We hung out today with some out-of-town guests at The Lawrence Hall of Science, UC Berkeley. In addition to the normal interactive exhibits, LHS also has a special exhibit running through May 2, Race: Are we so different? that was very good IMHO. It does a great job at looking at the physical, political and cultural complexities of race and well worth making the trip up the mountain. One of the exhibits is from The Hapa Project, a book project that explores the diverse ways in which mixed folks embrace their Asian-ness.
