Race in the Public Eye

How Do You See Race?
Race in the Public Eye logo

Race in the Public Eye is an online, digital exhibit housed on Facebook (facebook.com/raceinthepubliceye). The exhibit is a public discussion on race which aims to explore how our communities see race as it is enacted and lived daily in San Francisco, the greater Bay Area and beyond. Race in the Public Eye is a modern take on photojournalism; the exhibit will include still images, text, video clips and sound.
