Is race real? Or is it a social construct?

Farai Chideya asks Yolanda Moses, vice provost for diversity and conflict resolution and professor of anthropology at the University of California at Riverside.

Moses is heading a new project called "Race — Are We So Different?" Its goal is to help teachers talk about race in the classroom.

Moses says race is a cultural, not biological, concept.
