The Watsons Go to Birmingham, by Christopher Paul Curtis

- Introduction Christopher Paul Curtis wrote The Watsons Go to Birmingham—1963 throughout the course of 1995. The novel follows the Watsons, a black family living in Flint, Michigan during the Civil Rights Era. In a historical context, 1963 and the early 1990s have far more in common than one would expect.

Species don’t try to adapt to their environment. Adaptation to the environment is inevitable if a species has the right kind of genetic variation.

First a “random” process is the occurrence of mutations that generate an array of genetic variants, both good and bad; and then a “lawful” process (natural selection) that creates these variations....   [tags: Evolution, Charles Darwin, Natural selection]
