The Science of Skin Color
In this workshop, you will learn why our ancient human ancestors first evolved dark skin in Africa, and then later depigmented as they moved to other corners of the globe. What led to these skin color changes? Are these forces still in play in the modern world? What are the implications of this knowledge for our lives today? The science you’ll learn is only recently discovered, and the answers are surprising and delightful.
