African and African American populations are underrepresented in genetic research. For a limited time, 23andMe is offering a free kit to individuals with Sub-Saharan African ancestry.
The goal of this project is to improve 23andMe’s ancestry product through a better understanding of genetic diversity within Africa. We are specifically interested in reaching individuals from countries associated with the American slave trade in order to help African Americans trace their roots.
Participation is simple. Answer a few questions about your ancestry and if you meet the eligibility criteria, 23andMe will ship you a kit. Participants will have access to the 23andMe Personal Genome Service®, including personalized ancestryinformation, at no additional cost.
For those of you who asked me about this a few days ago

“Esteemed education and noted activist Dr. Cornell West was arrested earlier today (October 13) for participating in a ‘Ferguson October’ demonstration in Missouri. Dr. West was knocked to the ground during a scuffle where police were apprehending protestors who were participating in a display of civil disobedience. It’s unclear as of press time what caused authorities to target West and the group he was with during the act.”
