Historically Speaking: Intersecting Race, DNA, and Demography
- Thursday, September 10, 2020
- 3:00pm - 4:00pm
Highlights from the Event
Join us for an insightful conversation about advancements in genetic research and its implications for understanding race. NPR’s Michel Martin will moderate a discussion with Alondra Nelson, Rick Kittles, and Vence Bonham on how new findings in genetics tear down old ideas about race, grapple with the unfinished business of slavery, inspire meaningful conversation of reparations, establish ties with ancestral homelands, and advance biomedical research.
This program was made possible by contributions from the Foundation for the National Institutes of Health and support from the National Human Genome Research Institute.
