Live stream lecture by Dr. Spencer Wells
May 29, 2021 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
Dr. Spencer Wells’ studies have concluded that all humans alive today are descended from a single man, sometimes called “Ychromosomal Adam,” who lived in Africa around 60,000 to 90,000 years ago.
Spencer Wells is a geneticist, anthropologist, author and entrepreneur. For over a decade he was an Explorer-in-Residence at the National Geographic Society and Director of the Genographic Project, which collected and analyzed DNA samples from hundreds of thousands of people around the world in order to decipher how our ancestors populated the planet, in the process launching the consumer genomics industry.
He has appeared in numerous documentary films and is the author of three books: “The Journey of Man”, “Deep Ancestry” and “Pandora’s Seed”. His work has taken him to more than 100 countries, where he has collaborated with everyone from heads of government and Fortune 500 corporations, to tribal chieftains eking out a precarious living in places as remote as Chad, Tajikistan and Papua New Guinea.
The Video Live Stream will be followed with live questions and answers. The donation for the lecture is $10.
