A best-selling author and Emmy Award-winning TV producer will discuss humanity’s common origins at an upcoming political meeting.
Jon Entine, author of Abraham’s Children: Race, Identity and the DNA of the Chosen People, will speak Jan. 17 at the Blue Ash Northeast Democratic Club. The topic of his speech will be “Our DNA – Why bigotry and prejudice should be a thing of the past.”
The event is free and begins at 7 p.m.
Abraham’s Children is an overview of Western identity and explores the shared biblical ancestry of Jews, Christians and Muslims. Kirkus Reviews called the book “an epic tale…for Jews and non-Jews alike."
An Indian Hill resident, Entine is founder of the Genetic Literacy Project. The group is designed to foster a dialogue about the scientific, social and ethical implications of genetic technologies.
Also, Entine has been a writer, editor and producer on ABC’s Good Morning America and a special segment producer for NBC Nightly News with Tom Brokow. He and Brokow collaborated on the documentary, Black Athletes: Fact and Fiction, which was named Best International Sports Film of 1989.
