National Geographic Debuts a Special Issue Centered on Race

National Geographic is publishing a special issue “that explores how race defines, separates, and unites us.” A series “about racial, ethnic, and religious groups and their changing roles” will run through 2018. Muslims, Latinos, Asian-Americans, and Native Americans will be featured, among other groups. Debra Adams Simmons writes:
National Geographic strives to deepen our understanding of the world and our role in it. It’s difficult to understand 21st-century America without exploring the issue of race. It’s the elephant in the room, permeating every aspect of our culture, neighborhoods, schools, businesses, politics, sports, arts, and relationships.
While science tells us that there is no such thing as race, society uses racial distinctions to divide us. Throughout history, groups of people have classified those who were different from them as the ‘other.’ On the eve of the 50th anniversary of the assassination of civil rights leader Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr., we decided to look deeply into these issues with a distinct National Geographic lens. Our stories reflect a view that is global, scientific, and cultural.
