Facing Prejudice encourages the examination, in a constructive, non-threatening manner, of the complexities of the prejudices and stereotypes that exist in all human beings. Facing Prejudice is an unparalleled exhibition: a journey of questions, personal insights and factual statements designed to challenge and empower the visitor to fight for understanding and tolerance in their everyday lives. This exhibit was created through a collaborative effort between The University of Cincinnati and The Center for Holocaust & Humanity Education, Cincinnati. 

Dr. Seuss Wants You is a new version of an exhibit created by The Center for Holocaust & Humanity Education. The exhibit highlights the remarkably insightful works that show an unexpected and unknown aspect of Dr. Seuss. Typical Seuss characters encourage us to discover the issues were too often ignored by Americans while the rest of the world was at war: isolationism, willingness to appease, racism, and anti-Semitism. This exhibit also has a useful timeline of events, which provides context for the Seuss illustrations.

Present a valid student ID and recieve $5 admission.
