Anthropology professor, Dr. Dan Gebo, discusses the place of Lucy (known scientifically as Australopithecus afarensis) in the history of human evolution. Participants travelled to Madison, Wisconsin to hear from Dr. Donald Johanson of Arizona State University who discovered the most complete skeletons of one of our earliest human ancestors: Lucy. Dr. Johanson’s talk, “The Story of Us: Becoming Human,” was sponsored by National Geographic Live!
