20th February 2020 | Covent Garden

Join Adam Rutherford (and us) to help arm yourself against racism, both overt and casual with this pugnacious mix of bleeding edge science and history as he presents 'How to Argue with a Racist.'

Stereotypes and myths about race are expressed not just by overt racists, but also by well-intentioned people whose experience and cultural baggage steers them towards views that are not supported by the modern study of human genetics. Even some scientists are uncomfortable expressing opinions deriving from their research where it relates to race. Yet, if understood correctly, science and history can be powerful allies against racism, granting the clearest view of how people actually are, rather than how we judge them to be.

On 20th February, Dr Adam Rutherford (star of science on screen, author of Wellcome Trust prize shortlisted 'Creation') is LIVE is at Salon London to present to you his vital manifesto for a twenty-first-century understanding of human evolution and variation, and a timely weapon against the misuse of science to justify bigotry.

Don't miss the chance to let Adam equip you with an essential tool.
