Segment A: Racial Identity
A key subset of both individual and collective identity is one of racial and ethnic identification. These constructs, for Americans in particular, are continuously growing more complex and difficult to frame. On today's HearSay, Cathy Lewis will speak with a local scholar who's examining the complex interplay of cultural and racial identities in our modern society.

Segment B: HUSCRI
Over the next 30 years, Africans Americans, Asians, Native Americans and Hispanics will represent more than half of the U.S. population. Despite this trend, minimal time and medical resources have been devoted to explore the structural, clinical and functional properties of skin of color. The Hampton University Skin of Color Research Institute (HUSCRI) has made it their mission to explore these dermatolocial intricacies and join us on HearSay to speak about their efforts.
