Dr. Kittles will discuss what DNA is and how it reveals the hidden past, and complexity of African American heritage. Dr. Rick Kittles is Co-founder and Scientific Director of African Ancestry, Inc.

It is through his years of research on genetic variation in African peoples, his passion for African history and the movements of its people throughout the world that African Ancestry was created in 2003. Since then, African Ancestry has made its mark as a pioneering force in ancestry tracing, being the first in the industry to geographically assess African lineages to a present-day country of origin. Kittles’ work at African Ancestry has ignited global interest and dialogue, as well as unprecedented focus on African ancestry tracing in U.S. and abroad. His work has been featured over the past decade in five BBC and PBS network documentaries, CNN, and an interview with Leslie Stahl on CBS 60 Minutes. He has published numerous articles and book chapters on genetic variation in the African Diaspora, “Race”, prostate cancer, and Health Disparities.
