U.N. Group Publishes Pamphlets to Combat Racial Prejudice

Download PDF for this date

Continuing its efforts to combat racial prejudice, the UNESCO – United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization – today published two pamphlets by noted scientists disproving entirely the theory of a “pure” race. One booklet, “Racial Myths,” is written by Juan Comas, professor of anthropology at the Mexican School of Anthropology. The other, “Race and Culture,” is written by Prof. Michel Leiris, a leading French anthropologist.
