Join us for the launch of Innate: How Science Invented the Myth of Race, a Distillations podcast and magazine project that examines the historical roots and persistent legacies of racism in American science and medicine.

The Innate podcast season and accompanying articles will uncover hidden histories, unpack age-old misconceptions, and highlight those making change today.

Our kick-off celebration features a live listening party and Q&A with the Distillations podcast team: Lisa Berry DragoMariel CarrRigoberto Hernandez, and Alexis Pedrick, who is also the Innate project lead. Take a peek behind the scenes, hear clips and bonus audio, and join the conversation with our producers and hosts.

In addition to enjoying some light snacks, you can also go on a scavenger hunt in our museum, view a rare book display, or try your hand at button making.
