Alondra Nelson Discusses Race, DNA, And Demography

Harold F. Linder Professor Alondra Nelson joins Rick Kittles and Vence Bonham in a discussion about 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.

The discussion was livestreamed at 3 p.m. ET and moderated by NPR’s Michel Martin. The program is supported by the Foundation for the National Institutes of Health and the National Human Genome Research Institute.
