A new exhibit at Akron University in Ohio is giving people the chance to see themselves in a new way. 

It lets them change ethnicity, at least by picture.  It's a program entitled "Rethinking Race."  A photo kiosk lets students view digital images of themselves as a different race.  The objective is to have people put themselves in other people's shoes.  The university hopes that by taking part in the imaging experience, it will promote conversation and hopefully open minds as well.
