Episode Details

If genes are the canvass, is environment the brush that strokes the color and detail of who we are? This lesson surveys the nurture portion of the human equation by examining the influence of the prenatal environment, peer groups, and the power of culture. Differences in the White, Latino, Asian, and African American cultures are explored in depth, as well as how prejudices and stereotypes shape our attitudes.
