What does science tell us about race and racism?

19 November, 2015 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

£12

From Rachel Dolezal to the Charleston church shooting, the subject of race is never far from the headlines. Biological science tells us that ‘races’ may not even be real. but the social sciences tell us that racism certainly is. Can science help us make sense of these undeniably important yet emotive subjects? Writer and broadcaster Adam Rutherford will host a panel of experts including: Richard Crisp, Kenan Malik, Aoife McLysaght and Heidi Mirza for an evidence-based discussion of an always controversial subject.
