In connection with the very timely exhibit, Sorting Out Race: Examining Racial Identity and Stereotypes in Thrift Store Donations, the Smoky Hill Museum will be holding Community Conversations with a focus on different aspects of race and stereotypes, as well as how things change over time. Take a stroll through the new exhibit, then explore and express your thoughts on paper and in a brief small-group discussion.

These conversations will take place at noon and in the evening on the first three Wednesdays in October. Even if you cannot make a conversation time, the exhibit is worth seeing. Catch it before it closes on October 21.

Feel free to bring a brown-bag lunch or snack for the lunch discussions.

Sorting Out Race is free and open to the public Tuesdays-Fridays 12 noon to 6 pm and Saturdays 10 am to 5 pm.

The Smoky Hill Museum is a nationally accredited history museum, in the heart of downtown Salina, Kansas. This FREE museum is open Tuesday-Friday 12-6 and Saturday 10-5. Also, be sure to stop by the Museum Store for a wide variety of regional and Kansas products, local artwork and gifts for all ages.
