Game Stimulating Productive Dialogue About Race and Ethnicity
Developed by a cultural anthropologist, the two-player Who Am I? Race Awareness Game is designed to stimulate a productive dialogue between adults/educators and children regarding the complex and sensitive issues of race and ethnicity in a multicultural world. In the game, one player selects a target picture of a real person; the other player then asks “yes or no” questions to figure out who was picked. The app features more than 150 photographs of actual people from varied backgrounds, so the game can be played multiple times with new combinations of pictures each time. In addition, more than 60 practical tips suggest ways to talk with children about race and build deductive reasoning and communication skills. The Who Am I? Race Awareness Game is part of Interactive Diversity Solutions, bringing together art, technology, and education to get people talking about race in an entirely new way. By teaching about race in an innovative and engaging way, the game promotes respect, understanding, and empathy for all people. The app is made available, at no cost, by Playtime Interactive for iOS devices.
