The Myth of Race: Our DNA Defines Who We Are


"The Myth of Race," by Thomas Spelsberg, Ph.D., illustrates how cutting-edge research into our DNA has proven that all human beings are so genetically close that they are actually all one race. It details how our ancestors all originated in Africa, and over time developed varying visible and invisible traits through historical migrations and changing environments.
