AAA’s Video Round Up

A flurry of interesting videos have made their way across the AAA desks this week. Embracing people and race, here are our favorites:

The Anthropology department of the Univeristy of North Carolina – Charlotte is actively engaged in the RACE: Are We Do Different? exhibit that has opened this past week in Charlotte, NC at Discovery Place. Check out these two clips from the local television broadcast News 14 Carolina. The first clip features AAA’s very own Janet Levy. Dr. Levy is an Associate Professor and Chair of the Department of Anthropology.

 The second clip features AAA’s very own Jonathan Marks. Dr. Marks is an Anthropology Professor at the University of North Carolina – Charlotte.


The next video was highlighted on The Clog, a blog by Charlotte’s Creative Loafing. This blog featured the RACE: Are We So Different? exhibit in a post titled “We’re All Pink Underneath“. To prepare readers for the exhibit, the blog highlights The New York Times video U.S.: Young and Mixed in America.

In this video, The Huffington Post features video footage of one of the last uncontacted tribes in the Amazon. Click here for the complete Huffington Post article.
