The John Lewis Fellowship | Humanity in Action Program in collaboration with the Auburn Avenue
Research Library will host a screening of the documentary A Dangerous Idea. This film is a radical
reassessment of the meaning, use, and misuse of gene science to disenfranchise women and
people of color and provide a rationale for inhumane state-sanctioned crimes against the Nation’s
most vulnerable. populations. Like no other film before it, this documentary brings to light how false
scientific claims have rolled back long fought for gains, and how powerful interests are poised once
again to use the gene myth to unravel the American Dream
