The 6th Mural

Panel 6

Humans began over two million years ago. We are all related as a single species, just as flowers of a specific plant are related. As people spread over the earth, minor changes occurred when groups stayed in a climate for a long time. Dark skin protected people near the equator from the sun. Those in cold climates did better with lighter skin to absorb some heat from the paler sunlight.

Now these people wear clothes appropriate to the weather and can go anywhere. In the panel, the young African American in the upper left lives in Detroit. Next to him is a young native American child from the South West. In the lower right is an Asian girl whose picture was in the newspaper. Next to her is a young girl from Mount Pleasant.
