WHYY Features Lawrenceville Capstone Course’s Exploration of Race

Today, NPR’s Philadelphia-based WHYY News reported on Lawrenceville’s 2019 Capstone Lecture Series, an interdisciplinary look at race. How, journalist Alan Yu, wanted to know, are schools teaching students about this complex topic? He visited Science Master Leah Domb’s classroom in the spring when Sarah Tishkoff, a University of Pennsylvania professor of genetics and biology, spoke to Lawrentians about the biological myths and social realities of race.
Listen to (and read) Yu’s story: “What is race? It isn’t skin color, as some young people are learning.” The report is part of the WHYY series “Modern Kids.”
