Melanin Is Worth More Than Gold
Nine months after placing a marker at the grave of the Honorable Lady Henrietta Vinton Davis, we prepared to conduct a sacred libation ceremony in March 2014. The goal was honoring the one-hundred fifty-four African American women and girls who were lynched in America.
Then seemingly from out of nowhere the words came:
Melanin is a chemical
Chemicals have dollar value
What is the dollar value of melanin?
Several blog posts later we learned all manner of hoaxes, myths and urban legends were being promoted regarding melanin:
- Melanin is not carbon,
- There are no melanin thieves,
- there is no melanin stock market,
- melanin injections wont change people's skin color.
- melanin in your skin has nothing to do with the pineal gland
- and others.
