      Race, ethnicity, and migration 1. Race, Ethnicity, and Migration Society and Culture 2. Your island has a population of 10 million people. • What is the cultural background, welfare background, religious background and political background of your island? . Two Boston College School of Social Work scholars have co-edited a special edition issue of the W.E.B. Du Bois Review, a journal based at Harvard’s Hutchins Center for African and African American Research. The topic of this fall’s installment of the review is race and environmental equity.

    Professor Blum: Du Bois maintained that although race was a constructed way of viewing people, the world, and history, it nonetheless affected every aspect of human society and social relationships. From his epic, The Souls of Black Folk, published in , to his death in Africa in , he claimed publicly that race was prominent in influenced how people made sense of. Studying modern migration helps us understand complex economic systems, and it might even give us a way to ensure the future survival of the human race. In this article, we'll examine scientific research that shows how the earliest humans spread across the globe, and we'll look at modern migration patterns.
