*The Baobab Presents...*

RACE: THE POWER OF AN ILLUSION
EPISODE 1 - THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN US

*Friday, January 13th, 7:00 PM*
This episode shows that despite what we've always believed, the world's
peoples simply don't come bundled into distinct biological groups. We begin
by following a dozen students, including Black athletes and Asian string
players, who sequence and compare their own DNA to see who is more
genetically similar. The results surprise the students and the viewer, when
they discover their closest genetic matches are as likely to be with people
from other "races" as their own. Much of the program is devoted to
understanding why. We look at several scientific discoveries that
illustrate why humans cannot be subdivided into races and how there isn't a
single characteristic, trait - or even one gene - that can be used to
distinguish all members of one race from all members of another. Discussion
will follow.
