The Science and the Myth of Melanin: Exposing the Truths

by T. Owens Moore

In this ground-breaking work, perhaps the first full length scientific analysis of the substance found in practically all living organisms and inanimate objects, T. Owens Moore attempts to dispel the myths and rectify the common misconceptions associated with melanin. In part one, he focuses on writers of five key texts that employ an African-centered perspective. The recurring theme espoused by these writers is that melanin alone is the entity that makes black people psychologically and behaviorally different from non-black people. Nothing could be farther from the truth, argues Moore.
