The April issue of National Geographic is devoted to the race, one of the most divisive subjects of our time.
This special issue marks the beginning of a series of stories exploring race and diversity in America – informed by the latest research, individual experiences and unparalleled visual storytelling that is the hallmark of National Geographic.
The main feature story questions the very idea of race: Scientists tell us that there is no genetic or scientific basis for it, and that instead, it is largely a made-up label, that defines, separates and unites us.
Also as part of this issue we look back at our history and in the British Isles edition – guest edited by EMMY Award winning actress Archie Panjabi we include an essay by acclaimed British journalist Afua Hirsch on what it means to be ‘British’.
Every month National Geographic reveals the most important and compelling features on geography, science, history, culture, the environment and wildlife bringing you a fascinating and insightful look at the world.
With unsurpassed photography and beautiful illustrations, it’s your passport to explore Planet Earth and beyond.
