Why Darkness Matters: The Power of Melanin in the Brain

£35.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

Very good condition gloss paperback. First edition, first printing stated. Corners and spine ends very slightly worn, few minor scratches to gloss. Text very good, binding firm and sound.

"Asking the question, Are people with dark skin truly different?, these essays consider the history, science, and psychology of melanin. With contributions from such noted writers and scholars as Hunter Adams, Ann Brown, Richard King, and Owen Moore, these writings explore the history of people with surface skin melanin. The genetic influence of melanin on culture and learning is also addressed, with a specific look at the unfair treatment of African American children in schools that has led to poor IQ test scores and disproportionate numbers of African American children in special education classes."
