Exploring Human Origins: What Does It Mean To Be Human?

How can scientific discoveries on human evolution connect with larger
understandings of what it means to be human? Join Dr. Rick Potts, Smithsonian
paleoanthropologist and curator of the traveling exhibit, as he explores the main
themes and messages of the exhibit in a program for the general public. The talk and
following conversation will explore how fossils, archeological remains and genetic
studies shed light on our connection with the natural world and the origins of sharing,
caring and innovation.
