The Social Life of DNA: Race, Reparations, and Reconciliation After the Genome - Alondra Nelson

Nelson really grapples with what the onslaught of genetic genealogy testing really means in a social context. As a recipient of the mitochondrial DNA testing to African roots, like Nelson, it’s refreshing to witness an account that speaks to the heart of DNA testing for people of African descent—it means a possible reclamation of ties to the land from which people were taken. The work merges genetics with race, politics and identity to address exciting and ever-present concepts—reparations and reconciliation.
