  3. "Race is a pigment of your imagination." - Teja Arboleda

    You really think you know where Black begins and White ends? Or do you really think you can guess who's Asian, Hispanic or Native American? You're probably wrong. Since 1997, over 2 million people have taken the challenge, and no one has gotten it right.

    RaceOff™ is the original race-themed morphing video - a powerful classroom tool that helps unlearn the assumptions we all have about people based on how they look. This video has been used in schools, hospitals, and corporations in many countries, and has been seen by millions of people all over the United States.
 In 2009, RaceOff was chosen as a permanent featured installation in the famous national five year touring exhibit Race: Are We So Different.

    There are many ways in which we categorize people - from the size of the person to the color of skin to the language they speak. Within six seconds of observing or meeting someone, we most likely will make snap decisions as to what the person "is". We do this in order to categorize others and to make sense of the world around us. RaceOff works by 'morphing' between many faces so slowly, that you cannot tell the difference between them. And yet, gender, race, ethnicity, age and all the assumptions about each 'person' come into play every second of the video. RaceOff is a tool that helps people: Confirm that there is absolutely no way to discern where one race begins and another ends.

    - Understand that the way a person describes her/himself, and the way an observer might identify her/him, is usually very different.
    - Recognize that even within certain prescribed groups, individuals might identify themselves in a variety of ways.
    - Visualize that not all people from certain groups look the same.
    - Observe that there is very little difference between people.
    - Honor the code that reminds us we're all of the same race.
    - Enjoy the challenge of unlearning the assumptions and stereotypes we make about other people.

    REVIEWS

    RaceOff makes a good addition to sociology and social studies classes. The points are well-taken and the approach makes the audience active participants rather than passive viewers.
    - School Library Journal

    The library purchased the film for faculty use. I can tell you that we wore out our VHS copy and that is what prompted us to purchase a DVD version.

    Simple, visceral and visually stunning. It turns the idea of race on its head. The truth of its impact is not soon forgotten and the message speaks loud and clear. Watching RaceOff was one of the most powerful experiences I had during my teacher training and I'm excited to share it with my students.
