Visitors to RACE: Are We So Different? will meet trained volunteers there to encourage dialogue and reflection, answer questions, and help visitors explore the exhibition. We hope you enjoy getting to know them.

Race exhibit Volunteer: Efrata Yitbarek


Name: Efrata Yitbarek

“The notion of Race is prominently embedded in my psyche because I was born in Ethiopia and was raised in Moscow, Russia until I spent the second half of my life in America. Now in my early twenties, I am transitioning into the world of adulthood and also taking on becoming an American Citizen. Because of my upbringing, Race carries a different meaning than in America. As a Facilitator in the exhibit I look forward to exploring the cultural development of Race and its lack of biological evidence with the visitor and with myself as a student.”
