Show 492: Fund Drive Hour; Dr. Joe Graves, Jr.

Fund Drive Hour; Dr. Joe Graves, Jr.

February 12th is Darwin Day, and February is both Darwin Month (for celebrators), and Black History Month. For this special fund-drive edition of Equal Time for Freethought, we will be joined by Dr. Joe Graves, Jr.  Dr. Graves will discuss his life as a scientist where African Americans are still low in number, his specific endeavors as an evolutionary biologist (including his work on the social construct of Race), and what he has been working on in the last few years since we last had him on the program.  He will also talk to the importance of understanding evolutionary theory in the light of the fact that we still – in 2014 – have to  have debates between scientists and Creationists.
