It (the stroke) and the medicines gave me some interesting dreams and hallucinations occurred during my 2 1/2 days on my bedroom floor…[continued below]

Back to the point, I even manager to screen a portion of “The Real Eve” a graduate course at a private university.
THE REAL EVE AND OTHER QUALITY DOCUMENTARIES ABOUT THE ORIGIN OF HUMANKIND
I tell my students to add pbs and bbc to there search terms
A newer … scientific reaffirming of human origins out of Africa
After reading this I must get this book, all the best folks – Dr. Dontraneil Clayborne
