The Great Road Trip: New Stories in the Human Evolutionary Journey
Dr. John Kappelman, Professor, University of Texas
Wortham Giant Screen Theatre
This lecture launches our 50th anniversary year, honoring AIA Houston Society’s founders: Dominique de Menil, Philip Oliver-Smith, and Walter Widrig.
We salute the migration of Homo sapiens, who started us on the monumental journey out of Africa and across the rest of the world. The lure of what lies over the next horizon has always been a central part of the human quest. New discoveries have revolutionized the ongoing story; from Morocco to East Africa to South Africa, the latest news about our explorations—places, dates, and even genomic analysis—has helped to more fully and accurately reconstruct the original family album of the trip.
As we begin our 50th year of sharing humanity’s stories, we invite you to join us for a festive evening with a reception featuring Ethiopian coffee, African drumming, and dance.
