Editorial Reviews

How do you define race? Is it the color of your skin, the type of hair, or the way you live your life? Is your race defined by society or by scientists or by how you see yourself? ABC News follows one man's experience grappling with the fundamental question of identity. Wayne Nelson is a man who has lived the black experience and has written about the black experience. He has raised his son and daughter to be proud of their black heritage, a heritage he has been proud of himself. So he was intrigued after a seeing a story about a company that offered Ancestry by DNA, a test to find out just how much of him was African. The results were not what he expected at all and it made him readdress the age old question: "Who am I?" The question of race in America is the one that still defines us in a way that no other question does.

Not at all what I expected. I am a teacher in Miami Dade Public Schools and I used this as a teaching instrument to my high school students. This video did not peak their interest, but it did lead them to question the terms of race, culture, and it's larger sociological constructs. Others wanted to do a DNA test and learn who they are. A nice follow-up and discussion piece would be Alex Haley's "Roots".
