Tracing Your Ancestry

This is a free event taking place at the Dana Centre, the Science Museum’s stylish adults-only bar and café dedicated to discussing contemporary science, medicine, technology and the environment

The bicentenary of the abolition of the slave trade will be marked with renowned geneticists who will unravel the DNA history of Tim Campbell, winner of BBC One’s The Apprentice in 2005, and Cedric Barber, a white descendant of Samuel Johnson’s servant. The event tackles the issues surrounding tracing genetic lineage and the legacy of slavery. Questions raised will include: Is DNA the key to finding your African or European roots? Can genetic testing give you a better sense of who you are? This event has been curated by Prof. Elizabeth Anionwu, Head, The Mary Seacole Centre for Nursing Practice.
