Summary

The division of people into distinct categories—“white,” “black,” “yellow,” “red” peoples—has become so widely accepted and so deeply routed in our psyches, that most people would not think to question its veracity. This three hour documentary tackles the myth of race by subverting the idea of race as biology, tracing the idea back to its invention in the 19th century.
