Charles Darwin on the Races of Man

This week, our lecture is titled “Charles Darwin on the Races of Man.”  Our speaker is Dr. Joseph Graves, Dean of Biological Sciences at North Carolina A&T University.  The lecture was co-sponsored by Boston University’s African American Studies program and Department of History, the Humanities Foundation, and the Greater Boston Darwin Centennial.

 
Listener comments
  • This was an excellent show and provided many insights into what Darwin did and did not know (for example, Mendel's work – which Graves described in succinct detail), and how Darwin's results have been often misunderstood and misquoted. A book to get.

  • I'd love it if you'd please re-post the MP3 of this show since it's dropped off your podcast feed and isn't listed again for this evening (even though you rebroadcast it earlier on this evening). I would like to listen to this in the car again and the streaming option isn't really practical for that. The Windows Media streaming version is just offensive (Microsoft formats are in general "just say no" material) in comparison to a simple MP3. Thanks!
