Your Family Reunion May be Worldwide

One of the most troubling social issues is the dividing line between races and nationalities. What does it mean if we–at the most fundamental level–are really all brothers and sisters?

Wells’ visit is being sponsored by our friends at UNC Charlotte’s College of Computing and Informatics.  Here’s a link to find out more:
