‘Become warriors of change’: Q2030 urges community to tour Putnam ‘Race’ exhibit

Jack Cullen | February 5th, 2019

Small groups and organizations looking to address diversity, equity and inclusion in the workplace or elsewhere may want to tour the newest exhibit at the Putnam Museum in Davenport.

“RACE: Are We So Different?” challenges racial stereotypes and debunks misconceptions by examining the history of race, the science of race and the recent experience of racism in the U.S.

Greg Aguilar, director of the Q2030 Regional Action Plan for the Quad Cities Chamber of Commerce, spoke before members of the media at the exhibit’s recent premiere.

“Go through it, learn it, understand it,” he said. “Become warriors of change and supporters of inclusion for our greater Quad Cities community.”

WVIK, the Quad Cities National Public Radio station, featured part of his speech in its coverage. For the full story, go to www.wvik.org/post/new-putnam-ex…bout-race#stream/0.
